Greetings! This post is going to be a little different than my usual topics. I think it's safe to say that 2018 is rough on a global level. Thanksgiving is coming up pretty soon and we can still find reasons to be thankful, despite everything that's happening. We're going through difficult times economically, personally, environmentally, politically, etc. So, it's hard to be optimistic and grateful. I definitely see a lot of complaining on social media sites and the Internet in general. Let's take a step back and think about the positive things in our lives. Even the small things count, like a pay raise, reaching a weight loss goal, graduating from school, buying a new car, paying off debt, or whatever matters t0 you.
I'm certainly thankful for many things. There are many people in my life who provide encouragement and support. I completed my steampunk trilogy titled The Post-Apocalyptic Society. Earlier this year, I discovered the addictive nature of Netflix and other great streaming services. I'm also the proud owner of three littermate tabby cats. You can laugh, but pets give a lot of comfort to their owners.
Many elements were put in perspective when I became an author of post-apocalyptic fiction. I'm definitely thankful for mundane things like a roof over my head, running water, plenty of food, clean clothes, healthcare, any form of shopping, and a lot more. It's easy to forget about basic necessities until they're gone. Post-apocalyptic literature, films, games, and television shows remind us that everything could get much worse. Therefore, we should appreciate important things and people in our lives.
I'm wishing a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving to all of you. What are you thankful for? Please share in the comment section. Next week's post will be more typical of my blog topics. It might be my first triple feature film review because 2018 is almost done and there were a whole bunch of releases late in the year. Let's remain optimistic and look forward to 2019. Enjoy your turkey day!
