Thanksgiving is almost here. It’s my favorite holiday because to me it’s about being grateful.
I am giving thanks for all the blessings in my life:
The freedom and opportunity of the country I live in.
The beauty of nature that surrounds me.
The love and support of my family and friends.
The safety and comfort of my home.
The fresh, nutritious food I eat.
The comfort and love of my darling cat Tabby.
The work I do with athletes, helping them find confidence in life through sport.
The wonderful art I create.
The list is endless.
What are you grateful for?
I do a gratitude practice every night. I list all the things I am grateful for every day.
I also have a gratitude jar on my kitchen table where I put notes of things I am grateful for.
Going to gratitude when life seems too much or things get hard reminds me of just how much I do have to be grateful for. What you focus on expands. Choose wisely, choose gratitude.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
