Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

On this day that we are supposedly giving thanks for all of our blessings (and not making it about family squabbles, the size of the meal, shopping, or who won the football game), I’m, of course, taking this opportunity to blog about gratitude.

On most days, I have an “attitude of gratitude,” I find it within myself to be thankful for at least one thing in my life that is good. Oftentimes, when I am writing in my vision journal, I try to find as many things as I can, not limiting myself by finding “at least five,” or “at least ten.”

Sometimes I come up with a whole page of things I am thankful for.

I think for some people, it isn’t so easy. They will always find their glass half empty, or wishing for more than what they have. They see gratitude as a fine line of accepting what they have as “defeat” or that they may not ever have more money, that bigger house, the newest technological device or the latest car.

They fail to see that we all must be truly grateful for everything in our lives in order to attract more.

On the days I find many things to be thankful for, it creates a positive energy that allows me to accomplish more in my personal and my work life.

That’s how gratitude plays into the Law of Attraction.

I hope all of our Living Large community, whether you reside in the U.S. or someplace else, will find time to count your blessings today.

It will make you feel better and just might help attract more of what you want into your life.

Happy Thanksgiving!

      Thank you, Olivia. I just read a really nasty comment about Living Large on Facebook, so you and Vicki’s comment balanced it out. 🙂
