With the Thanksgiving holiday just passing, I am sure the message of being thankful has been in all of our minds. This is definitely a lesson I have been learning this past year. Many times we don’t appreciate what we have and we just continue to look at what we want and what we think we need. I have definitely been stuck in this mindset for the last few years forgetting to be thankful for the many things I have been blessed with and the amazing people that are in my life.
Recognizing the good things in my life and showing my gratefulness for them has truly changed my attitude. I find my days are more pleasant and peaceful. Oprah said it pretty good, ” Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” (Yes, I just quoted Oprah)
