Thanks Giving

The obligatory Thanksgiving blog?
Giving thanks is not obligatory, but it does make life better.
I feel bad for people who don’t believe in God.
They have no one to be thankful to.

It’s been said many times, and by many different ‘authorities’, that people are considerably happier when they have an attitude of gratitude. There have been studies done on the matter, but one doesn’t really need to consult a study to know if the conclusion is true. One only needs to put the matter into practice in one’s own life to test the validity of its claim.

Going to bed with a thankful heart is the pre-curser to waking up in the morning with one. Waking up in the morning with a thankful heart is the key to ‘having a good day’.
This is not difficult, or complicated, psychology, nor is it Eat-Pray-Love privileged pop indulgence. It is simply the way our human psyches work.
One does not need to search the world for what will make them happy.
Happiness in inherent in giving thanks.

The dictionary defines ‘Psyche’ as “the human spirit, or soul; the human mind as the center of thought and behavior”.

There are a myriad of things in one’s life, or throughout one’s day, to be thankful for.
Do yourself a favor, and choose one.

Choose a different one every day if you dare.
