Teen Monday Madness – Thanksgiving!


cartoon turkeyHey peeps! Welcome back to Monday Madness from a Teen’s Mind. I am super thrilled for this

week. You probably know why, but just in case you are wondering, it’s Thanksgiving week! Yesss… It is finally here!!!! Now you may be like, “Addi, are you kidding me? My life stinks and I have nothing to be thankful for.” If I were standing in front of you, then I would say, “Are you kidding me? There has got to be SOMETHING you are thankful for!” Here are some ideas…


Are you thankful for…




a house?

 the ability to breathe for another day?


If none of those things are good enough for you, here are some more basic things…

Are you thankful for…

the sun rising in the morning?

the stars twinkling at night?

the amazing clouds that can drop rain and snow?

water that you can drink? (don’t tell me you don’t have water…you can get water pretty much anywhere and you have to have it to survive)

Thanksgiving is a great holiday on which we can all be thankful for AT LEAST one thing. Now I understand that some of you who are reading this have tough lives. I don’t know what you are going through, but I am sorry and I hope things will improve. But remember…the sun will still rise and set every day.

This is a great way to remind me how thankful I am for my friends that I haven’t seen in over a year! It also reminds me how grateful I am for my family; sometimes I take them for granted because I see them everyday. However, I need to be thankful ALL THE TIME!

Well, that’s about all for today, but before I close let me give you a tip. ADDI’S LIFE TIP #1: When you are feeling grumpy, depressed, or upset, think of things you are thankful for and say them in your head. It could be 100 things, or it could be one thing, but either way, giving thanks is a great way to raise your spirit! (You don’t have to only do this when you are feeling down, do it whenever!)


Oh, and by the way…
