While it is great to gather with family and friends and give thanks for every blessing at Thanksgiving, an attitude of gratitude is something that we should have every day.
Adopting this positive attitude means having:
- Contentment about what we do have even though we may not have everything we would like to have. The things we’d like to have are endless but basics like food on the table, a home to go to and a job that pays the bills are things that some people don’t have. Even while striving for more or better, be content with what you already have.
- Being positive even in negative situations will help you recognize what you have. Reach out to the less fortunate like orphans, widows, the elderly and the homeless. Get involved in church and community initiatives that plan activities for people who have less than you have. You’ll have lent a hand and you’ll feel grateful for what you have.
- Taking care of the environment. Even in the 21st Century, there are those who go hungry and who don’t have clean water such as in third world countries. Be grateful for your country, neighborhood, and community and take the time to preserve it such as by recycling and keeping it clean.
- Accept what you can’t change and do your best to make the most of what you can change. Don’t agonize over people with sour demeanors, bosses that are unfair or friends that betray you. Do stand up for yourself when you need it but let go of negative people and situations whenever you can.
