Giving thanks

This is still Thanksgiving week in the US (I just learned that Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on October in Canada.)

Typically, it is being celebrated with friends and lots of food and football. Well, that’s the fun part. However, if we will take this holiday seriously, we’ll know that it’s all about thankfulness. It’s the time of the year when we celebrate and give thanks for all the blessings that we’ve been receiving.

If you will ask me, giving thanks should not only be an annual event. It should be done every day. I bet it will make our lives better and it will put our minds into the right perspective. Perhaps, we can allot a couple of minutes of our time everyday to slow down and give thanks for all the blessings that we have received. This is even a good opportunity to regenerate and recharge our energy. But another advantage is it will slow things down so we can focus on the most important things in our lives.

Let’s make it a habit to think all the things that we should be thankful for and take some time to have gratitude for everything and everyone that we have in our lives.
