“Gratitude is more than just saying thank you. It is a sense of wonder, appreciation, and thankfulness for life.”
As we approach Thanksgiving, be encouraged to consider this wellness challenge: Put more effort toward sincere gratefulness throughout the month and focus less attention on seasonal stressors, busyness, and unnecessary drama.
Unnecessary drama . . .wait . . . does this mean I do not need to invite [Nicole] to the family party? Could I skip preparing the traditional foods and make something more simple? Perhaps. You decide what works best for you and yours. However, if not inviting a particular person or skipping a particular dish are not realistic, maybe modifying your perspective could be beneficial. How could you view the circumstances in a different way?
Breathe, be aware of the good, and smile.
