Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated near the end of November, in the Unites States and a handful of other countries, where people give thanks for all the good things in their lives. Families and friends often get together to eat too much food and spend the day watching sports or movies. People are grateful to have the food and the time with people they care about for this one special day each year.
Why only one day a year?
This grateful day doesn’t have to come only once each year. Why can’t we grateful every day of the year instead? Isn’t there something each day, that you can be grateful for? Just waking up to new day would be a good start. Having a roof over your head, seeing the sunrise, talking to a family member, a friend or many other things can also give us the same feeling if we let it. There is too much of our time focused on things that we are unhappy or worried about and finding something good that happened will certainly make the day better.
Why only be thankful on Thanksgiving when you can be thankful every day. If you find one thing each day to be grateful for, I would bet that you will feel better than if you go through the day with the same old life sucks attitude.
A challenge for you
Everyone likes a good challenge and I have a very simple one for you but you have to do it each and every day. Find one thing from each day that you are thankful for and reflect upon it at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter how insignificant you believe it is, just find something.
I have a lot of things to be grateful for on this Thanksgiving day but I just added one more, writing this blog post after not writing for almost 11 months is one extra thing I can be grateful for today.
