Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Thanksgiving Day makes everyone focus on the things they are grateful for which makes it one of my favorite holidays. We can hold on to that feeling of gratitude every day.
The holiday automatically has people thinking about the big things to be grateful for like family, friends, good health, food on the table and a roof over our heads. We focus on these things and feel better about our lives.
It’s too easy to be caught up in the negatives of daily living especially when they are forced on us by media or negative people in our lives. Without realizing it, we end up focusing these things and we feel our moods darken and our energy fading away.
Why not feel good about at least one thing, no matter how small every day? It’s easy to do if you put just a tiny bit of effort into it and make a goal to find one thing a day to say thanks for.
When I say small, I mean it can be really small but as long as you look for that tiny thing, you will find you are a little bit happier, a little bit more positive about life. It can be from anywhere, home, work, nature, or other people.
How about the light that turned green for you or the parking space that is open just for you? What about the beam of sun that appears just as you take a moment to look at the sky? Or the wonderful sound of a belly laugh of a toddler or the smile of a stranger?
That’s what my Little Pleasures page is for. I would love to hear what you are grateful for today.
