Happy Thanksgiving for Americans!
Saying thank you is something we should all do more often. When you have access to a computer and the internet - you have a lot to be grateful for.
Giving thanks has nothing to do with just feeling thankful you have more than others. Giving thanks is when you feel thankful you have enough to share with those less fortunate.
- Feeling grateful for what you have leads to finding ways you can give to others.
- Feeling sorry for those who have less than you means you focus on lack, which is negative and draining.
Try those two feelings for yourself.
- Look around, and you will find clothes you haven't worn for a year, ornaments that just collect dust, music CDs you no longer listen to, and all of these are more than you need. Really appreciate how fortunate you are to have more than you actually need. Think about how much poor children will benefit when you donate these things to charity. That feels good!
- Watch a news program, and read about children struggling in poverty, and notice how your mood drops as sadness takes over. This energy is heavy, which makes it harder to find solutions, so it's easier to switch off, and no action takes place.
No matter how dark a place you find yourself in, when you look up you will find light from the stars. There is always something to be grateful for, and the more you search out things to say thank you for - the more your awareness expands, and the more things you will see that fill you with gratitude.
You can't feel two emotions at the same time, so when you focus on feeling grateful, you can't feel sad or stressed - so keep doing what makes you feel good!
If you say thanks at least once an hour - by next Thanksgiving your life will look entirely different.
“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” ~ Willie Nelson
“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” ~ W. Clement Stone
When you thank others for every little thing they do for you, you send the greatest gift to make them feel loved and appreciated. If you need help to find the right words, this Kindle book has poems and quotes to complement the original photos.
And I'll be very grateful you bought it!
This is one review:
"After having worked a long, tiring day, I opened the Quotes of Love book hoping to find some peace and something that would uplift my spirits. First, the floral photos, which accompanied each poem exactly fit the poems and they alone soothed my soul. And then the words of each poem washed over me giving me just the comfort and relief I'd hoped for.
I have been studying Eckhart Tolle's work centered on his primary book, The Power of Now. Surprisingly, listed in Quotes of Love was a poem by John Greenlief Whittier entitled "Now". It is interesting to me that the importance of the present moment was being written about more than 100 years ago. I loved this book for many reasons! I'll keep it on my nightstand."
