Giving Thanks…

  Today is Thanksgiving and families everywhere have come together to give thanks for all the blessings they have had throughout the year. It is a wonderful time to reflect on how much you have accomplished and to take stock of how much growth you’ve had. People will sit down to dinner and as they prepare to feast, one by one they will give the reasons why they are so thankful. Some reasons will be big and some will be small, but they will all be things worth being thankful for. 

    While today allows us to give thanks in the company of our loved ones I ask, why limit yourself to just one day of giving thanks? Giving thanks is something that you can do every day and the benefits of doing so are well worth it. Just think about it. While you’re sitting there giving thanks how do you feel? If you’re anything like me, than you get a wonderful feeling which makes you feel even more grateful. Now who wouldn’t want to feel wonderful all the time. Imagine it…waking up every morning and giving thanks for all the blessings you have. It’d be one hell of a great way to start of your day! 

   Living in the attitude of gratitude, as it is referred to by many who live it, not only creates these great feelings, but is also an integral part of the law of attraction. By giving thanks you are sending out a frequency to the universe. The universe receives this frequency and will then return more of that frequency to you as a response. So if you are sending out feelings of gratitude, you will receive more things to cause you to be grateful. This can come in a variety of forms and at times you may not even realize it, but slowly you will start to notice that those feelings of joy and happiness remain with you longer and longer. 

   I put this challenge before you: For one month wake up every morning and before you leave your house take a moment to look in the mirror and give thanks for all the things you are truly grateful for. You can say this to yourself, though I suggest you say it out loud. For me personally, there is something about saying it out loud that registers more than just simply thinking it. Now at night before you go to bed, do the same thing but add anything from that day you might not have mentioned that you were grateful for by the end of the day. 

  You have nothing to lose, but you could be gaining an amazing new perspective while opening a new path for how you want to live. So why not live giving thanks every day? Hope you all enjoy the day and time with your families.
