Personally I like to think of every day as Thanksgiving day. Some days this can be more difficult than others when stuff doesn't go my way but I've found that by having the Gratitude Attitude even bad days can have a ray of hope in them.
I woke up this morning in a bit of a crabby mood because of all that is going on in the world right now. I avoided Facebook as is becoming my new routine (actually not a bad one to have!) I sat quietly with my coffee in a sort of meditation but my cat was acting like a loon, not allowing me to sit quietly. He wanted attention, and lots of it and was bouncing around the place. I admit it - a little irritation started to creep in. But just as that happened he climbed onto my lap, collapsed into an exhausted heap and fell promptly to sleep. I looked at him and couldn't help but be thankful he came into my life.
I have a challenge for you. Take the time this thanksgiving day and every day this week to write down 3 things that you are thankful for. Use the comments section below or share them with a friend. Sharing the gratitude has a greater impact on your own well-being and those you choose to share it with.
Research shows the gratitude attitude has long-reaching affects on our health and wellness; but you won't need to read the research to believe it... just live it and you'll see!
