Song by John Legend

I’ve written about love before, but this song really is making me do it again. This is by far one of my favorite songs at the moment and is just one of those songs that just makes you think and feel. This kind of love is out there for every person, it is a type of love that everyone should feel once in their life. It is the kind of love that brings out the best in people. What kind of love am I talking about? It’s the love that knows no boundaries. The kind of love that, when you see that person, makes you feel like everything in the world is right. I know somewhere out there, somewhere, that kind of love exists for every person whether you believe it or not.

I may just be one of those people that believe that everyone exists on this world for a purpose and every person on this earth is supposed to, one day, find their purpose. But, I also believe that beyond the purpose of helping humanity in some way, each and every one of us has the purpose to love somebody unconditionally. The type of love that is portrayed in this song shows acknowledgement that no one is perfect, but it is the love of somebody’s imperfections that drives what true love really is. It is giving yourself and expecting the entirety of the other person that drives a relationship that is brought together by love. It is truly trusting in and believing in what you’ve got that keeps the relationship going.

Someday, I hope to find that love. Someday, I know I will find it. Someday, it’ll just show up unexpectedly and slap me in the face. Until that day, I will continue to believe that it’ll come, because, like I said, every person on this earth has a purpose. My purpose? Your purpose? Love unconditionally and with everything you have.

Today is a day of being thankful, a day of happiness, a day of joy, a day of fun with family, and material possessions are overlooked on a daily basis because they are part of everyday life and we have grown accustom to having them in our lives.  But, what happens when that stuff is taken away?  What happens when something you love has been taken from you and you can’t reach out and touch it anymore? Usually, this is the moment when you realize you didn’t know what you had but now that it’s gone you realize how great it was.  Sometimes it’s the loss of something incredible that forces you to see what you’ve had and to be truly thankful for all the stuff you have in your life.

I am truly thankful for so much in my life and have fallen into a “grind of life” mentality that I should not have.  There is so much in life to be thankful for, but just living life has thrown me into a spiral of not being able to realize the incredible people and things around me.  Today is the day for this to stop! I challenge each and every person who reads this to take this step with me and vow to yourself to not take things for granted anymore.  Look around.  See the people and things you have in your life.  Don’t just have them in your field of vision, I mean actually SEE them, appreciate them, love them, care about them, listen to them, speak to them.  For all you know they may not be there forever!

For all my family and friends, I am truly thankful for everything you have done any continue to do; for allowing me to be a part of your life, putting up with my sometimes less than stellar personality, for dealing with my flaws and weaknesses and accepting them anyways, for lending a listening ear when I need it, but most of all, for adding to my life on a daily basis.  Without my family and friends I do not know where I’d be today.  The addition of love, care, happiness, humor, and joy they’ve thrown into my life has, without a doubt, pushed me to go farther every step I’ve taken and motivated me to attempt things I would have never attempted without them behind me.

Turn today, the rest of the month, the rest of this year, next year, and (why not) the rest of your life into a perpetual thanksgiving (without the huge feast).  Remind yourself everyday about the things around you that you should be thankful for.  Realize the love that surrounds you.  Realize the amazing people in your life.  Don’t allow yourself to feel regret or remorse for not knowing what you had until it was gone. Live every day with an unconditional thankfulness for everyone around you.  Have fun and be thankful for the things you can do.  Love everyone like you’ve never been hurt.

I hope all my readers enjoy their Thanksgiving Day and allow their hearts to be opened to the people around them.  Take the step with me and make an attempt to turn your life into a perpetual Thanksgiving! It may be difficult, but I know down the road I will grow to appreciate everything in my life so much more than I already do!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
