Give Thanks Every Day!
Ahhh, Thanksgiving, our holiday to be thankful. Some would think it’s all about having to travel long distances and put up with annoying relatives, gorging ourselves with too much food or watching a marathon of football games then passing out on the couch, snoring with your mouth open. (I can’t tell you how many pictures I have taken of relatives doing just that. )
But why give thanks for only one day? Giving thanks every day is one of the most powerful tools we posses. Look around you and see abundance everywhere, not just in what you have but in Nature and the Universe. Are you thankful for all of it?
I am thankful for the beautiful places that surround me.
I am thankful and happy for fun times together.
To help be aware of being thankful everyday, keep a daily journal where you write at least three things that you are thankful for. Do it either in the morning when you get up or before you go to bed. When you get up in the morning, before you plant your feet on the floor, think of at least 10 things that you are thankful for. It’s a great way to start the day.
Tell someone you appreciate them every day, even if its your dog or cat. It could even be a stranger who holds the door for you.
I am thankful for the beauty from my garden.
I am thankful for the peaceful places that I can visit every day.
I am thankful for my home.
