This Thanksgiving I am not giving the usual advice I normally do about eating, drinking, etc.
Nope, this year I am just urging people to make the most of the holidays with the people they love. Be grateful for what you have where you live (you could live in a war zone), what you have (you are not homeless), who you love (many people have no one).
Thankfulness is essential for good health and happiness is a concept that is centuries old, “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” (Col. 3:15)
Instead of bemoaning how terrible you think the world is or people are, why not focus on the good things in your life. Recently one of my favorite writers, Lisbeth Darsh, wrote about focusing on what is right and good in your life.
You can go through life griping, complaining, and being miserable (while irritating everyone else around you); or you can choose to take the high road.
