Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion into clarity. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~ Melodie Beattie
Thanksgiving feels like a magical time. No matter who we are, where we are, we come together and celebrate the things for which we are thankful. And we really do have much to celebrate. Alas, that we could carry this feeling of plenty through all our days! The thing is, we can. After the turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pies are zip locked and put away, we can make each day its own Thanksgiving.
How? These are really tough times. Being grateful doesn’t imply that everything in our lives is great. However, being consciously aware of the blessings we have, appreciating what it is we do have, instead of what we don’t, can be a powerful energetic force, and ultimately, a source of joy in our lives.
Go on, open your heart. Make each day its own Thanksgiving, and enjoy the prosperity in your own life.
