This is Thanksgiving across Canada. In the US you have to wait until November. Either way this holiday is the least commercial of all. We tend not to give presents to our children, we don’t spend thousands of dollars trying to out do the neighbours in decorating the homestead.
This is the perfect time of year to live the holiday. Write a list of what you are most thankful for. The people, your home, your job, your family and friends. Make that list and try and make it at least 20 items long. If you can do more (I believe you can do 100 if you stopped and thought about it), do more! We have all heard of the law of attraction, what you give you get. The more thankful you are the more you will see return back to you. I truly believe this.
Here are my top 20 things that I am thankful for:
Emily, Matthew, Kristina, Mom, Patrick, Ange, Laura, Trisha, Craig, Arlie, Jack, CJ, Rich, Brenda, Erin, Ian, Iain, Shannon, Johnny, ORNJ, Robin S, Jason A, my home, my camp staff, my drinking water, my country, my health (usually), Rich S, trees, nature, hand written cards, the ability to read and write.
Thanks way more then 20 but there are actually close to 100 on my list right now. Make a list and be honest about it. Then read it out aloud. Don’t be shy. Share the list with your family and challenge them to do the same.
Thanks to you the reader of the STUpendous BLOG! I would love to read your list so post it here!
