This time of the year, Thanksgiving season in the U.S., is an obvious time to be thankful and look at what we truly have to be grateful for in our lives. Taking inventory on what is a blessing in our life on a daily basis is a practice that this season brings to mind for me. Although, I have been told by many a good friend to just “have an attitude of gratitude” and whatever I am grateful for will increase because what we focus on gets bigger. So…. on that premise, here is my practice of choice.
Upon waking in the morning or closing the day with creating a mental list of some of the little and big things in our lives. Some of my favorite appreciations in my life are: good health, a roof over our heads, beautiful sunsets, food on the table, good friends, loving family, good employment using my God-given gifts, opportunities to grow, just to name a few.
I offer this blog entry to you as a gift and a gentle reminder to carry the season of warmth and the abundance of love, sharing, and kindness throughout your days. Make Thanksgiving- the giving of thanks- a daily practice and watch your blessings grow, become a happier individual, and this good energy will naturally impact to all of those around you.
