Thanksgiving may be in November, but World Gratitude Day is right around the corner.
Any time is a good time to take a moment and reflect on all the reasons you have to be grateful. So why not do it on World Gratitude Day?
Growing up, my mom made a point to constantly remind me of exactly how lucky I was. I heard some variation of “You may not have everything, but you sure have a lot,” all the time.
Thanks to my mom it’s a whole lot easier to take a metaphorical step back during times when I’m feeling down or when life isn’t going the way I planned. So if I start to feel a little blue, I try to keep my chin up and mentally chant the words of the immortal William DeVaughn: “Just be thankful.”
This Saturday, no matter how busy you are, spend a little time being grateful for everything, regardless of how much or how little you have.
