What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it - would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
I am originally from Slovakia and we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. How sad! Honestly, I wish there was such holiday in Europe, because there are just so many things to be thankful for. Now is the time when we reflect on all that we have and give thanks. But wouldn't it be awesome to feel gratitude for the simple things every day? It has been scientifically proven that consistently grateful people are happier, more energetic, more empathic, more spiritual, more forgiving and less materialistic. I was inspired by author Lori Bregman to practice living in gratitude and here is how I do it:
Think about five things about your home that you're thankful for.
Think about five things that you appreciate about your family.
Think about five things about your relationship with your loved one that you are thankful for.
Think about five things that you like about your career.
Think about yourself and give thanks for your body and your health, because "what you give yourself, you have for others".
Happy & Strong Thanksgiving,
