What Are You Thankful For?

In today’s social media age, we are showered with negative thoughts, opinions, and events on a daily basis. It’s all too easy to get bogged down by bad news and overlook the positive. But, the truth is, we have so much to be thankful for. So, during the month of November, we are using the YMCA of the Northwood’s social media to shine a light on the good things in life and the Y’s positive impact on our community with #30DaysofThanks.

And we invite you to join us! For the next 30 days, we challenge you to look on the bright side, reflect on what you are thankful for, and share your gratitude on social media. You can make #30DaysofThanks a spiritual experience or simply an opportunity for self-reflection, evaluation, or meditation. The important thing is that you take a few minutes each day to write down what you are thankful for so you can reflect on it later. 

Visit us on Facebook to follow the daily posts for #30DaysofThanks!


  • Pay attention to the small things that happen throughout the month.
  • Use a calendar to take note of one positive thing each day.
  • Share your stories on social media using the hashtag #30DaysOfThanks.

Gratitude changes everything, so let’s take time for us to grow as individuals and as a community this November. We look forward to sharing our stories of appreciation!
