There is a quote that says ‘there is always something to be thankful for’. I believe that it is true, but I know that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it is tough to have positive thoughts.
Thanksgiving day gives us an opportunity to put things into perspective. As you gather with family or friends, or even if you are having a meal by yourself, think about something that you are thankful for in your life.
Forget for a minute about all the problems in the world, your disappointments, the health problems in your family.
Once a good memory or thought comes to your mind, hold on to it. Enjoy that moment of peace and smile.
Life will always present us with challenges, disappointments, and losses. But it will always give us new opportunities, new beginnings, better days. Good and bad will always surround us, but we can choose which one will accompany us through our journey in this life.
I am thankful for my family, for my friends, and for all the people in the world that believe in a better tomorrow.
I am thankful for all the good that there is in the world, despite the hatred some insist to bring up.
I am thankful for those that fight for our rights and protect us against injustices.
I am thankful that there will always be a new day, and there will always be a chance to start over and change the course if the current path is not right.
I hope you have a wonderful day and that the things you are thankful for in your life continue to exist and lighten your days.
