Why wait until Thanksgiving when you can be thankful early? That way, you can enjoy the benefits now.
The Joy of Being Thankful
Have you ever taken up a new hobby or interest? When I started playing the guitar I started noticing all the music shops that I had never noticed before. When I started eating better and becoming healthier I began noticing bike paths and places like indoor rock climbing. These things existed before my focus changed, but my mind became absorbed with them because it’s what I filled it with.
Do you want to know the secret to happiness that many people have found? Be thankful. Why? Because it focuses our minds on the good in our lives. When we complain we focus on the bad.
No matter how good you have it, there will still be bad things in your life, and no matter how bad you might have it, there is still a lot to be grateful for. Being thankful sets us up for a better day. Why not do yourself a favor and focus on the things that make you see your world as bright and full of possibilities?
