Thanksgiving means different things to different people.
Yes, we could get into all kinds of discussions about celebrating a piece of history that has all sorts of twists and turns. Certainly we can examine the faults of the Pilgrims and the awful things that happened to the Native Americans. But I would much rather look at this as a day to celebrate abundance and gratitude.
There are many things for which I am thankful, and today I want to change my usual pace when I post here, and share them with you.
I am thankful that I have my health.
Thankful for my wife and family, and chosen family, whom I love.
I am thankful for my friends.
Despite our horrific President and awful Congress, I am thankful to live in a (still mostly) free country.
I am thankful that I have the opportunities that I do.
For my writing skills and creativity I am extremely thankful.
For the abundant Universe and ability to employ Consciousness to Create Reality, I am enormously thankful.
Last, but certainly not least, I am thankful for you, for reading these words and helping me achieve my dreams.
We live in interesting times, arguably in the sense of the classic Chinese curse. But we have the ability to choose what to make of the world we live in. Each of us has the ability to build an amazing life. We are empowered to do far more than we usually acknowledge. I don’t know that I can completely express my gratitude for that.
On this Thanksgiving, I strive to be truly grateful for all the amazing people and things in my life. Though this can be challenging sometimes, it is important. I want to thank you for coming along on this journey with me.
