Well, it was Thanksgiving last week for those of you stateside and I feel as though this should be part of our prompt this week. But not the usual "thankful for the blessings in your life" kind of way. You know that's not how we roll round here. We like to take a new direction on familiar ideas.
For example, you will no doubt remember prompt #15 where Pam asked us to be thankful for something about ourselves. What a great idea to take a few minutes to think about ourselves in a positive way at this time of year when the focus is very often on others.
Therefore, I'm going to ask you to think about something you are very thankful/grateful now but for which you haven't always felt that level of affection/gratitude/thankfulness.
It could be something that you didn't want to happen but it had a great, positive outcome. Something you used to dislike, but have learnt to genuinely love. Maybe something quite negative but that opened you up to something new that you could never have imagined.
This layout is in response to prompt #78 - Missing someone or something. It would fit for this prompt too with its positive result that I am thankful for, coming out of a difficult situation over the last 18 months.
And I know exactly what I will be trying to make this time around....
We hope you are inspired by our take on being thankful to create. Make sure you share over at our Flickr gallery (here) with the prompt WM#112
