Celebrate what you have, with who you have…
Give Love, Give Thanks
This is the first Holiday Season since the Pandemic and put a tight grasp over the world. The number of worldwide cases has recently gone up driving a lot of people away from traveling this year. This makes it easy to become hyper-focused on what is going wrong instead of what is going right. Take this time of year to be thankful for what you have made it with. Enjoy the holiday season with these 3 overlooked things everyone should be thankful for.
1. Your Family
Anyone who has made it this far into 2020 knows just how stressful this year has been. Use this time to celebrate what you have with who you have. Even if you are not physically with your family at least give them a call or send a text message. Use whatever socials you have to let them know you love them and the love is shared.
2. Thanksgiving Dinner
Remember the good ole days when you would wake up on Thanksgiving morning to various inviting smells from the kitchen. Your nose would be more confused than your stomach. One thing to keep in mind this holiday season is when you are reflecting on what has happened in years before, don’t forget to look right in front of you. It is so easy to get caught up on what happened on past holidays that you will often neglect the family that you have, and the love you may overlook.
3. A Bed
If you have read this far that means that you have a phone with an internet connection or a computer. Either way you already have something to be grateful for. Not just that, but you woke up this morning and you plan on sleeping again tonight so that means you have a place to sleep. The point is that whether you are sitting at the dinner table or on your couch as you are watching football you have a place to do it. Learn to be thankful for the little things. Life is too short to be focusing on what you don’t have. When you do it takes away from the time you could be spending building what you want in life. Remember, “It could always get worse.”
Take a break from what is going on in the world, or on your TV screen. Give yourself 2 hours this November 26th (that’s Thanksgiving) to be grateful for what you have instead of what you don’t have. We as people, as humans are meant to love each other. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
Be great by being grateful.”
