Today, my friends in the United States are celebrating Thanksgiving.
Families come together, have an amazing meal and share. And while I know that this sounds too ideal for many of us, I also know how good it feels to give thanks.
To simply stop today, sit down and make a list ( one in your head is okay, too, does not need to be on paper) with things in your life for which you are grateful.
Just start with “I give thanks…
- for being alive today
- for my good friends
- for my family
- for being healthy and strong
- for being able to express my joy
- for the sunshine on my face
- for having something to eat and drink
- for being able to walk
Notice how it makes you feel. Is that a smile starting to spread over your face?
This process is simple yet profound and only takes five minutes.
Give thanks and enjoy your day.
