According to Google; being thankful means – to be pleased and relieved.
I will be honest, for most of us it is much easier to be overcome with worry and fear than to be thankful. Learning to be thankful takes time and you need to let go of the need to compare yourself with others.
For me, being thankful is a daily choice. In this industry that I am in(wedding photography), being surrounded by so many opinions and things constantly changing; I have to stay grounded in what I know is true. And what is true; is to know that God has chosen me to do what I do, and with his help I have the ability to do it in a way only I am able to.
For this I am thankful today: being a part of moments so precious in people’s lives and the honour to document it all.
So my advice to you today is; be excited, knowing that God has your best interests at heart and his plans for you are much bigger than you have for yourself. Don’t always wish you were somewhere else, or someone else, be thankful for where you are now. Because one day you might just wish you could have today over.
“GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER” Psalm 107:1
