We are living in very challenging and exciting times. The economic downturn has not been easy for many and everyone is feeling the pain in some way. At the same time, there is much hope for change and stability moving forward. During this holiday season, it can be easy to latch onto that negative spiral and ride all the way down. But, what would be possible if we chose a different spiral that could be moving upwards? The point here is that we have the ability to choose. We have the ability to act, think and feel differently about the current situation. Sounds simple, but it’s not always easy.
As Thanksgiving is upon us, we are reminded of what we do have and are grateful for. I was moved by what Joseph Farah writes about the meaning of Thanksgiving as he says, “The Pilgrims recognized that everything we have is a gift from God – even our sorrows. Their Thanksgiving tradition was established to honor God and thank Him for His blessings and His grace.” In the midst of challenging times, it is a great reminder to take this month to reconnect with what you are grateful for in your life. It could be as small as having a pillow under your head to raising healthy children, from being able to pet your cat or dog to having great relationships.
When we stop and take the time to be grateful for what we have, who we are, the freedom we have and what is available to us, something shifts in us. We feel lighter, more relaxed and can look at life from a more open view. The more we can all do that on a daily basis, the greater the shift to increased prosperity, fulfillment and abundance we will all have.
This holiday season, I wish you and your loved ones peace in your homes, joy in your lives and much gratitude in your hearts.
