Ello mates, I thought since this is the "Uplifting Stories and Messages" forums section I would share a quick reason to be thankful with you:

We are human. We are actual human beings. There are literally millions of other living organisms we could be, we could be a dog, a dolphin, a shark, a minnow, a bacterium, algae, a fly, a bird, literally anything else, we could have been. But we are actually human beings, with a soul, a spirit, a mind. We are probably the best, most well-functioning living organism in the entire freaking universe. We have arms, we have legs, we have opposable thumbs! We are so so soooo lucky to be an actual human being, and we shouldn't take that for granted. There's about a 1/1,000,000 chance that we would be destined to become a human, yet here we are.

Anyway, I hope that at least made you think a bit, even if it didn't make you specifically thankful. Thanks for taking the time to read this. :)

Have an amazing day.

This is a really nice reason to be thankful. We should all be thankful that we are human:)

Hahah, would you actually? A fish's life is actually pretty dangerous, and pretty emotionless, soulless, it's just swim around, and try to survive. But hey, to each their own.

Yeah but it's innocent and free of worries mostly as I envision fish. (the non-predator fish). That right there appeals to me
