Gratitude on Thanksgiving Day is a given and it's easy. But are you grateful every other day of the year for everything, good, bad, ugly, otherwise? Gratitude is also about being thankful for the bullshit because ultimately that bullshit is a teacher, somehow. Whether to not do something again, whether to change something that's not working, whether to realize that even though it's bullshit you still got it good.
So I am grateful for everything that has crossed my path or happened to me this year. Good, bad, ugly and otherwise.
