19 Questions to Help You Give Thanks This Holiday Season

Tomorrow, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving in America, a day for counting our blessings (and eating yummy pie!). In honor of that, I’m republishing a piece from last year, which features questions to help us give thanks. To help us rediscover and remember what is meaningful to us — from the super small to the really big. I hope you like them!

  1. What are the things you use every day that you’re thankful for (anything from your pillow to your journal to your iPhone)? Why?
  2. Who are the people in your life you can talk to about anything?
  3. Who are the people in your life who always make you smile?
  4. Who are the people in your life who always make you laugh and forget your worries?
  5. What are the fun and meaningful things your body lets you do?
  6. What are your favorite foods?
  7. What activities really nourish you?
  8. What’s on your gratitude alphabet?
  9. What energizes you?
  10. What are your favorite places to frequent?
  11. What’s your favorite part of your day?
  12. What can’t you live without?
  13. What has been your best decision this year?
  14. What do you love about your home?
  15. What do you love about nature?
  16. What are your favorite sounds?
  17. What are your favorite scents?
  18. What books or blog posts or quotes do you turn to when you need to remember you’re not alone?
  19. What do you have now that you didn’t in the past that brings you much happiness (love; faith; knowledge about something; a fulfilling job; a newborn)?

Your responses to these questions are all the things you can be grateful for. Every day. And that’s pretty incredible.

If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have a beautiful holiday. And if you’re not, I hope you have a beautiful day. Also, thank you sooo much for reading this blog. I am very grateful.
