Be Thankful

Thanksgiving could be my most favorite holiday;  cool temperatures outdoors, crackling fireplaces, the sweet smells of delicious foods and the love of family togetherness.  I am always reminded of just how lucky I am each Thanksgiving, and the poem shared below is a constant reminder of attitude and the role that it plays in conscious daily living.  I’m hoping that you too will find great meaning in its message and share it with those that you hold close during this most special time of year.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with love, happiness, gratitude and Centerpeace!  Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired  and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your life’s blessings.

I’m thankful for all of you.
May your Thanksgiving be filled with love, laughter and Centerpeace.
