"We have so much to be thankful for."
I’m sharing this on one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time to be with the people that are the most important to you. Gratitude is rooted in the Holiday and it also serves as an annual timestamp to reflect on how things have been over the past year.
The truth is, “we have so much to be thankful for.” Thanksgiving marks another year of abundance where we’ve gotten everything we need. It’s a reminder to reflect on all of the blessings we have in our life that we’ve taken for granted. And it’s a chance to renew your faith that everything happens in the right way at the right time.
Even those things that we might not realize in the moment were there to serve us, we get to write our own story and determine the meaning we assign to the event. That health scare is a wake up call. Getting laid off is a redirection to where you’re meant to be. All pain is just an indicator to a better destination. The challenge is being able to listen to it.
Gratitude is a perspective, and it’s a choice. You can choose to see a situation with anger and fear or you can choose to see it with gratitude and acceptance. And when you choose to see life in a way where there’s too much to be thankful for, you’ll start recognizing the abundance you’re surrounded by.
Of all the people to have ever lived, in all moments of history, I’d say we have it pretty good. If you have a full stomach and a roof over your head, you have your baseline needs met. That’s something that many people would trade anything to have. So be grateful that you have it. We have so much to be thankful for and on a day like Thanksgiving, when you’re prompted to think about it, you really start to see it!
