Even if you’re not from the U.S., we should all take a moment to give thanks today. The world is experiencing an unprecedented financial crisis, terrorist attacks, multiple wars, famine, disease, global warming (I know the Republicans will deny this) and poverty. We’re all affected by world events now that we’re living in a global economy. We’re no longer separated by the borders of our countries. We’re all affected by the events of the world so lets give thanks for what we have in our lives.
Even if you’re on the verge of foreclosure and bankruptcy, find something to give thanks for. No matter how bad you think things are, you can always find something to give thanks for.
Did you get out of bed this morning? Then you have something to give thanks for. Many people can’t get out of bed because of sickness or injury. Do you have food in your cupboard? Give thanks for the food you’ll eat today because many people won’t eat anything today. Do you have a roof over your head? Give thanks for you shelter because many people are losing their homes and live on the street.
There is always something to be thankful for. If you can’t think of anything then ask someone to help you find something to be thankful for. Be thankful that you have friends or family that can support you during these trying times.
Also reach out to others that need your support. Friendship and kindness are free so reach out and help someone by being their friend and listening to their struggles. You’ll make their day and I bet you’ll feel a lot better too!
