Thanksgiving is almost here, the time of the year where we gather together and enjoy a hearty meal surrounded by friends and family. This year it also means that not only are we are at the end of the month but the end of the year is fast approaching as well. During this final stretch to Christmas and the New Year, we get so caught up in expenses, buying last minute gifts and stretching out money that we often forget to pause and say “thank you" for the things we do have.

  Yes, even thanks-giving has given way to sales and shopping and perhaps a sense of panic that we have not done enough and the year is ending. This year instead of finding fault with your life, goals or accomplishments, I challenge you to be grateful. Gratitude as defined by the oxford dictionary is the quality of being thankful or a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. It is not something we always remember, which is why this Thanksgiving, we should all write down at least 5 things we are grateful for. Let’s end the year by being real with ourselves and expressing gratitude for the things we do have.

Happy Thanksgiving
