Growing up with my momma, she always drilled into my head the importance of being thankful. I've always loved Thanksgiving, not just for the food & being around family; but because it reminds people the importance of thankfulness. In undergrad I had an AMAZING professor (Dr. Slattery) that suggested in class one thanksgiving for us to take the month & think of something each day to be thankful for. I've done something similar with my family, but usually it's just the week of thanksgiving, so each November I try to stretch it for the whole month.
So this November I'd like to challenge everyone to remember how many things there are to be thankful for, and spread the good and find something you are thankful for each day; whether you post it on a blog, facebook, twitter, email, a journal, or you just say it out loud to yourself. Take a minute each day to remember to be thankful.
If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.
