Have you noticed that the “Black Friday creep” is invading our day to be thankful? Our pysche is constantly being reminded of what we don’t have over what we do have. So why is it important to concentrate on the focus of Thanksgiving day and the meaning?…
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey
Do me a favor this week (and hopefully continuously), adapt the “Feisty Girl Attitude with Gratitude” daily exercise. Every time before you eat, complete this sentence and insert the three characteristics Fesity Girl admires the most: choice, courage and love. For example:
I am thankful for ______________________ because it gives me the courage to ____________________.
I am thankful for ____________________ because I love ____________________________.
I am thankful for _________________ because it gives me the choice to ___________________. Take a second and reflect on this exercise because it is these things that you are thankful for that promote Feisty Girl growth!
Regardless of your circumstances this Thanksgiving, concentrate less on those because…
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” Melody Beattie
