Today is Thanksgiving, and I am sitting on my couch, enjoying my piece of caramel apple pie and a cup of Earl Grey tea. I spent the whole day surrounded by delicious food and my wonderful family.
On days like today, we’re “forced” by society to think about what we hold close to our heart- and in a way, it’s a good thing that we’re forced.
Whether we’re at school or work, we speed through our day, focusing on what needs to be done next. We don’t have time to look around at what we are doing in the present.
It’s important that we take time to be grateful for the people/things in our life, especially when we are in the busy-ness (haha, business. get it?) of life. Not just on Thanksgiving, which is only 1 day out of the 365 in the year.
So once Thanksgiving break ends, take 5 minutes each day to be grateful, whether in prayer or meditation or whatever else you do. Write a few things you’re grateful for each day, and you’ll start noticing the difference in how you act around others.
