Feeling Grateful

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
  • for…

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.

  1. So many people are chosing to argue today, over the history of the holiday. I’m happy to take a moment to be thankful for all that I have now. And maybe a day to remind yourself to be thankful EVERY day.
