We are entering into a season of thanksgiving. Take time to look back over the last year and see just how much you have to be thankful for.

It could be as simple as waking up this morning or as difficult as waking up this morning, depending on your point of view. Maybe someone did something for you that was unexpected and met your need at the time. Maybe someone thought you needed to smile and sent a note or card your way. Maybe you were sick and someone prayed for you. Maybe you missed hitting that moose on the road as it jumped out in front of you. Maybe you are just extremely glad to be well today. Whatever has happened, no matter how small or how large in your life, you have a reason to be thankful. Recognize that you have a reason to be thankful.

Take the time today to tell someone thanks. Keep your eyes open and see how you can help someone else. Don’t look for something overwhelming, instead find something that will make a difference. It could be as simple as opening a door or taking out the trash. The point is to do something for someone whether they know about it or not. In fact, sometimes you get the greatest joy from doing something and no one knowing it was you.

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance. ~ Eckhart Tolle
