1. A loving partner.

Having someone who loves and believes in you no matter what is very important. Finding your loving mirror brings in great inspiration and confidence in everything you do.

2. The World Wide Web

The web or the internet has brought people closer. One is able to promote one’s business, services or products to people all around the globe. We are able to connect with people through the many different forms of technology and the internet has played a great part in connecting us with others in the many different countries.

3. Your clients

People that you are able to connect with, be it here or those from different countries and with different nationalities place their faith in your company and your products every day. Compliments and good reviews that are given are spread to others promote your business.

4. The people who work for you.

Those that work hard with you to accomplish the goals of the business. Those that work hand in hand with you for the success of your business. And those that dedicate their time and effort for the service of your customers.

5. Modern medicine.

Nowadays with the technology, we are able to extend our life span and improve the quality of life through modern medicine. We are able to spend more time with our friends and loved ones. This is a great deal to be thankful for.

6. Hot running water.

Yes that’s what I said. Going home after a stressful day at work and before hitting the sheets you take a nice long hot shower. This is just a stress buster for me.

7. Indoor plumbing.

Having hot running water goes hand in hand with indoor plumbing. I am not being cynical but millions of people around the globe do not have this benefit and that is why I do not take this for granted.

8. The talent of being a fast typist

If you are a fast typist, well then join the club! I have this talent and it has helped me in taking down notes whenever I am in seminars or programs I attend which allows me to go back and review what was being said. This can be a very useful talent and tool that you can make use of.

9. Cell phones.

Many of you will agree that the cell phone is indeed something to be grateful for. It has made things much easier for us. We are able to get in touch with others wherever we may be.

10. The fact that you can read.

This is truly a gift that we should be thankful for. Books not only give us information, it also entertains us and sometimes inspires us. Books can change your life.

11. The fact that you can write.

Having the talent to write is one of the greatest gifts that one can have. You are able to convey your feelings and thoughts to others through your writings. And with the internet, you are able to reach millions of people around the world.
These are the specific things that I believe we should be grateful for. It goes without saying that we are grateful for our friends, family and health but what I have listed down are some things that we may toss aside and take for granted.

Do you think I missed out on anything on this list?

I would appreciate your comments and maybe you would even want to share your own list. Looking forward to hearing from you.
