Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's important to remember that being thankful and grateful is one of the best things you can do for growth as an individual. As we grow older, we grow more aware of the world around us. Awareness isn't always a negative thing, it's a mature thing. One thing I've become more and more aware of is how lucky I am. How lucky I am to have my health, my friends, my crazy family, and the opportunities I've been given in life. These are just some of the few things I am thankful for.
I invite you to think about how lucky you are each and every day. If you're reading this post, you're
already luckier than a lot of people. Putting things into perspective and stepping back is a very mature act. It's simple to say that because we all have our things, we all get caught up in our own lives.
You are lucky, you are fortunate. Use the gifts you possess to go out and inspire the world. Even the tiniest pebble still makes a ripple when dropped in water.
Be thankful, and be grateful each and every day of your life.
