Sometimes it is hard for us to remember that there is so much to be thankful for…in a world where there are economic, social, political and personal problems on a daily basis, many of which we cannot escape being thrown in our faces through media and social media….BUT…
Although it may be difficult at times to focus on the positive and wonderful parts of this world and our lives, Thanksgiving gives each one of us pause to reflect on the things for which we are thankful.
Here is my list of things that every one of us can be thankful – you can of course add your own details but there is no excuse to NOT be thankful for the following:
2. Love (self love and the love of others)
4. Nature (sky, air, trees, flowers, animals, water, go crazy here but there is beauty everywhere)
5. Laughter (if you don’t have this in your life, or not enough, find it!)
6. Relationships (people, animals, memories)
Ok so I know this list is very broad in scope, but since I didn’t think anyone wanted to hear my personal details I thought this was a great way to get you to start filling in the blanks. There is not one person who cannot be thankful – whether they are ill or homeless or lost everything important…we are here for such a short time and if we do not make the most of each moment we are not truly living. It starts with appreciating breath and loving ourselves. If we have that we can make our lives beautiful.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! To my family, friends, clients, colleagues and acquaintances – you all inspire me to grow, achieve and to make my life better on a daily basis, and for that I thank you. To all of you, I wish you a beautiful holiday and beyond.
