Here in the United States, it’s Thanksgiving.
This is a day that we give thanks for everything in our lives. It has some traditional roots dating back to the establishment of our country, and while you may or may not agree with these, today is a day that we get together with our family and friends and remember how lucky we are to have everything that we possess.
Let this be the start of a daily ritual. Starting this year, I challenge each and every one of you, from this Thanksgiving to the next, to wake up each day and remind yourself of one thing you are thankful for. Small or big. Anything, as long as you are truly thankful for it.
This can be a personal daily affirmation, or you can give thanks out loud in whatever way you choose.
Today, please be safe. Take care of yourself, and fortify for the holiday season ahead. Enjoy whatever you have planned and the people that surround you. Remember those less fortunate, and if you have the chance to brighten their day, please do so. There are people near you right now that are thankful simply that they got to wake up today, so never forget all the things that make you fortunate.
Today, I am thankful for you. Thankful that you are reading my words, and that you allow me to share my life with you.
