Thanksgiving Each Day

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion into clarity. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~ Melodie Beattie

Thanksgiving feels like a magical time.  No matter who we are, where we are, we come together and celebrate the things for which we are thankful.  And we really do have much to celebrate.   Alas, that we could carry this feeling of plenty through all our days!  The thing is, we can.  After the turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pies are zip locked and put away, we can make each day its own Thanksgiving.

How?  These are really tough times.  Being grateful doesn’t imply that everything in our lives is great.  However, being consciously aware of the blessings we have, appreciating what it is we do have, instead of what we don’t, can be a powerful energetic force, and ultimately, a source of joy in our lives.

Go on, open your heart.  Make each day its own Thanksgiving, and enjoy the prosperity in your own life.


The Perfect Life

How often do you dream about how perfect your life would be “if“… When you begin to think of what could be, instead of what already is, you lose touch with the present moment, and all the beauty that surrounds your life. When your thoughts turn to dreaming of the “what ifs,” come back to the present moment, and give thanks for what is. Having gratitude for what you already have, opens space for more blessings to come to you.

“To live a great life is to discover the life you have right now, instead of trying to invent a whole new life.” – Betty Mahalik
