Fall is here and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I love Thanksgiving, it is my second favorite holiday of the year. There is so much about the day that I love, of course I adore the big family dinners, I like decorating for it, I like the history behind it and most of all the attitude that comes a long with it. I love getting emails from people about all the things they have to be thankful for, reading posts about it on facebook, all the blog posts that about it and hearing about everyone’s many blessings. Every year I make a point to write a blog or post somewhere about all the things I am thankful for. It is always a good reminder to myself about all the blessings I have in my life.
This year I have decided to shake it up a little bit. Starting 1 month before Thanksgiving I started a month of thanks. Each day I will write about something I am thankful for. I am going to do this on my personal blog, each day I will write a post about something I am thankful for and why. At the end I am going to print it out and make myself a little blessings book. That way whenever I am feeling down, I can get my little book out and remind myself of all the good things in my life.
I am hoping to get others to join me in this project and really get people thinking about being thankful. I know how easy it is to get wrapped on it life and the issues we are all having. It is easy to forget all the good things you have and even easier to let the bad overwhelm you. This is why I am doing this, I want to uplift myself and remind myself of the good things. I want to show myself how truly blessed I am.
