Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules are simple: Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
This week is to honour America’s Thanksgiving, by expressing ten things we are thankful for. Even though I am a Canadian, and had already celebrated Thanksgiving last month, I figured I would write about what I am thankful grateful. It’s really beneficial to think and write about what you are thankful for.
This is in no particular order.
1. My family, and my boyfriend. Even though I wished I was able to see them more, but with the whole pandemic, we haven’t gotten together as much.
2. My friends. I don’t have many friends, which is okay, but for the few people I actually talk to, they’re awesome people. I wish I was able to hang out with them more.
3. Being able to help others. I love that feeling, being able to help brighten someone’s day.
4. My books. I love reading, and I am slowly reading more books from my bookshelves. I used to buy a whole bunch of books, and never actually get around to reading them. Which is why I have been spending more time reading them.
5. My tea collection. I enjoy making myself, and others a cup of tea, or even a latte (depending on which tea we’re having).
6. Sports. I love watching sports. My favourites are football, hockey, basketball, and baseball. I love reading about the players, the traditions, and superstitions. I love reading about the history of the team. I enjoy following stats about the players.
7. My room. I love my room. It has everything that I enjoy, my books, my tea, my mugs.
8. My laptop because I use it for my blogging.
9. My crockpot, because it allows me to make delicious soups, and pastas.
10. The ability to be comfortable with less – things, stress, debt. I am starting to understand the importance of feelings, and experiences, instead of being bombarded by all of these things.
I would love to see your list of things that you are grateful for.
