And just like that, 2017 is at your doorstep. To enjoy life to the fullest this year, take a moment, and think about all the blessings you receive. To get the ball rolling, here are five things we think everyone—yes, including you—should be thankful for:
1. New experiences
Think about all your firsts this year. It can be anything from flying to Cambodia for the first time or finally learning how to ride a bike. Either way, you're about to step out of your comfort zone, learn something new, and overcome your fears.
2. Family and friends
They may not be perfect, but they always have your back. As the year unfolds, make sure you tell your family and friends just how much you love them and appreciate everything they do for you.
A demanding boss, a horrible breakup, and a couple of financial struggles—these are just a few of the challenges you could endure this year (but hopefully won't!) They may not seem like blessings once they come, but the lessons you learn from these experiences will shape your character.
4. Good health
If you're starting and spending this year healthy and in great shape, you have more than enough to be thankful for. It's true what they say—health is wealth.
5. Your uniqueness
At this point in your life, you need to understand that being beautiful isn't about being perfect—it's about being comfortable in your own skin—quirks and all. Remember, you have your own version of beauty and the best gift you can give yourself is to celebrate it, uniqueness and all. With 2017 coming in full blast, Dove wants you to celebrate your real beauty, and empowers you to embrace your own kind of beautiful in the new year.
