Be Thankful!

Most of us probably say “thank you” several times a day … when someone holds the door for you, when someone gives you a compliment, or when someone does something nice for you. “Thank you” sort of rolls off our tongues without a second thought.  But, have you ever taken a moment to really think about why you are saying “thank you.”

Think about it.  When someone holds the door for you, they are taking a few seconds out of their day to make life a little easier for you. Shouldn’t our “thank you” be a genuine result of our gratitude toward their act of kindness, and not just something that rolls off our tongues? 

We live in such a fast-paced world that we oftentimes do not reflect on how great our lives are. We may not have everything we want or be where we want to be, but we are here, we have life, and that’s enough to be thankful for.  Yes, we take time to be thankful during Thanksgiving, but what about year-round?

I have a challenge for my blog readers.  From now until the end of the year, spend 10 minutes before you go asleep at night reflecting on what you were thankful for from the day. You can even take it a step further and write these “thankful thoughts” down.  This will help ensure that we do not take anything for granted and ensure that when we say “thank you” it’s a true reflection of our gratitude.

I’ll join in this challenge and start! I am thankful for all of the readers of my blog who come back week after week for updates.  You all keep me motivated to come up with great content for the blog! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and remember to be thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving
