November 23 ~  Thanksgiving You Are Special

"A hundred times a day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depends on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the full measure I have received and am still receiving." ~ Albert Einstein

Begin today by saying "thank you." There is so much to be grateful for. Each new day is 24 new hours to live... and celebrate life.

"Man absolutely cannot live by himself," explained philosopher Erich Fromm.

Be grateful for everything and everyone. To look at life with gratitude is to clearly see opportunities. Even at those times of the greatest challenges, with gratitude, any difficulty can be transformed into a blessing, into a meaningful lesson of growth.

Failures are merely stepping stones to success. Pain moves the heart to coping, to healing and the discovery of greater compassion for others.

"Gratitude," said jazz musician Lionel Hampton, "is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind."

Celebrate your blessings today: All that you have... All that is RIGHT in your life.  Make it a routine to write your celebrations down daily in a journal and share your gratitude with others. Gratitude brings peace and hope. Gratitude is contagious.
