To give thanks

Tis the season to be thankful, to remember times and events that lift our spirits.  A time to focus on the positive and refresh the soul.  A time of intentionality. 

Thanksgiving is an American holiday based in legend, recounted for generations.  And while there are many who dispute the facts of its origin it still remains a good story.  The foundational reality of this holiday regardless of the attacks and disputes centered upon is this, be grateful.  Look at that which lifts your heart and the hearts of those around you.  Share, demonstrate compassion, open your heart, and enjoy the day. 

A simple day set aside to remind us that keeping our focus on the depressing is not good.  Staying centered on the frustrating aspects of life is not productive.  But simply turning your attention to intentionally center your thoughts and attitudes on the encouraging, is very beneficial to body and soul.  Being thankful.  Being grateful. Looking at the good.

Now, if you do not celebrate a day of thanksgiving, a day to be grateful due to location or personal desire, that is entirely your privilege.  But simply let me say, think about it.  It is not essential to eat until you burst or watch the game.  But taking the time to refocus can indeed be beneficial.  Being thankful is not based on family or friends, it is not dependent on the trappings of the season, it’s about you and your thoughts. 

So, to one and all I do now say, may you have a very thankful day.  And if you want to eat too much, well, who am I to say no?
