I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Actually, for me, simply waking up in the morning knowing family, friends and colleagues are close by, watching my back and motivating me forward are plenty to be thankful about.
What are your grateful for?
When was the last time you took a few minutes to jot down who you should thank and for what?
How will you show your gratitude today and everyday?
With only 5-weeks left in 2011, many of us are looking back at our accomplishments over the past year and start planning what we’ll achieve next year.
What about making a detailed list of all the thing that went right this year?
Write down all the new places you went, the new people you met and the successes you created.
Now, what about you?
Many times, we are hard on ourselves and forget to be thankful to ourselves.
So this Thanksgiving, after saying thanks to all the people who have helped make your life more fulfilled, take a hard look in the mirror, see your own efforts, your kindness, your bravery, your perseverance and your love – and remember to give yourself a big thumbs up too.
Thank you for your kindness, friendship and love.
