I saw this post today and I thought about how truthful and pertinent it is, especially at this time. As we look forward to Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season some of us are tempted to start checking the boxes for all the things we’re not or don’t have. Some will start measuring ourselves by where we are and where we think we ought to be, and some will no doubt arrive at the conclusion that we have little or nothing to be thankful for. But the quote is so on point, “so much of our happiness depends on how we choose to look at the world.” I say as long as we have life, we have a lot to be thankful for. To be clear, I’m not suggesting that life is always “sunshine and roses”. Believe me I know a lot of us are truly going through some things right now, so we have to pray, stay strong and keep our eyes peeled for that light at the end of the tunnel. Still, some of us may need a change in perspective. Try looking on the brighter, positive side for a change. We may find what we need to make us happy and thankful has been there all along, we just needed to change the way we look at it.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holiday!
