Do you ever find it hard to be thankful? I mean between watching the news about the economy, what the job rate is and home prices, it's enough to bring anyone down. (On the radio the other night I heard about a study conducted that said money or even the mention of money makes a person meaner!) And an ungrateful attitude causes a person to dwell on what they don't have instead of what they do have, and places fear inside the soul. Some of the most miserable people I know happen to be the most ungrateful and fearful. Instead of cultivating this spirit of ungratefulness and fear, I want to start something new this Thanksgiving season. What about counting your blessings, and naming them one by one?
This year around the Thanksgiving table have each person name 3 things they are thankful for. And you can do this yourself before you go to bed at night too. You'd be amazed how this simple act can help you develop a grateful spirit. And no matter what your circumstances may be this Holiday Season, being grateful can make you a happier person. :)
Gratefulness is a state of mind that should be practiced daily instead of yearly. Make everyday Thanksgiving.3 things I'm thankful for are- my family, my eyesight, the use of my hands.
