As we embark on the month of November, it seems like the perfect time to pause each day and give thanks. There is so much I have to be thankful for, but sometimes it’s easy to forget and only focus in on the things I don’t have. This will be a good exercise in remembering to be grateful, and hopefully it will create a habit to carry over to the next month and beyond!
Day 1 is easy – I am thankful for Gayle. She pushes me to be a better person, giving me a swift kick in the butt when I need it. She also supports me in whatever I decide to do; whether it’s racing in triathlons or learning how to crochet. I know that no matter what, she has my back. It’s a good feeling!
That is not to say that we don’t have disagreements, (just check out the picture….when the Panthers play the Steelers – watch out!) but I’m thankful for those as well because it’s good to know that you can disagree with someone and not have it turn hateful. I have a difficult time sharing my true feelings and am learning (slowly) that it’s ok to have those feelings, even if they are different from someone else’s.
I want to challenge you to do the same – find something specific to be thankful for each day this month. It will change your outlook on life.
