    There are some many things!! Top of the list are family and friends! And since we live in many different time zone I have to add the Internet and technology because it allows me to stay in contact with them.

    On a meta scale, I'm pretty darn thankful for still being alive and being able to witness life as it happens. On a not-so-meta scale, I'm thankful for being able to create prose, music, art, ideas, and connect with friends and strangers who then become friends. You can't buy the creation of an idea or the start of a friendship. But you can go right ahead and be thankful for it.

    I am grateful for all who have shared their lives with me over this past year by reminding me to always be my personal best, Some taught by being inspirational. Others put a mirror up to my face - with their actions and words - reminding me of how ugly I look and feel when I am less than my best. Mostly, though, I am grateful to the people who forgive my imperfections as I humbly reach to become the best version of myself yet!.

    I am grateful to be pursuing the journey at Humble Pen. The dreams of these children makes me want to work hard every single day. They have given me a reason to smile. Every day I wake up thinking what can I do to help these children pursue their dreams. So, I launched Humble Pen about couple weeks ago. It would mean the world to our community at Humble Pen if you can support our Indiegogo campaign-

    I'm grateful to be where I am (the fall in the Caribbean can't be beat), to do what I do (teach English and culture), and to have my health. I'm grateful for my family, my friends, my students, coworkers, teachers, brothers and sisters in faith, neighbors, everyone I connect with. Even the difficult people, I'm grateful for the challenges they present and lessons they teach me. I'm grateful to have a bed, a roof over my head, water & food, and faith that it's all working out the way it should. And I'm grateful for sites like GOOD.IS because I can see there are a lot of really good people doing really good things all over the world. Thanks!

    Creativity. Yes it's vague, but without it, what would we have? I'm thankful that even if I'm in a stressful situation, I just go outside or the internet and bam! I feel happy and motivated again. Also, it basically covers books, the arts, my friends, and a lot of amazing memories and curiosities. Along with that, I have to say im thankful that there is still some good and faith in the world, keeping society mantained.

    I am thankful for my wife. She has been every love story cliche I can think of but won't list for the sake of space.
