“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.  Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior.  Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior become your habits.  Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.  Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.”

— MAHATMA GANDHI, Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Book of Eastern Wisdom

Thanksgiving may just be my favorite of all the holidays.  A day to celebrate the saying of “Thank You” (which we should, of course, be saying every day).

Let’s try it–quickly now, what are five things you are thankful for in your life?

Me?

1.  Hot, running water

2.  Faith

3.  A more than sufficient income

4.  A wonderful family

5.  Discovering kale   

Doesn’t that feel good?  To express your appreciation.  (Even if you don’t like kale.)

And here’s a really encouraging and enlightening article, “Boost Your Health with a Dose of Gratitude,” about the health benefits of gratitude.  I urge you to make it your Thanksgiving reading!

Don’t Even Try II

Okay, I can’t help myself.  You may have seen yesterday’s “Don’t Even Try” post about a turkey singing a Thanksgiving song to the tune of “You Can’t Hurry Love.”

Well, lo and behold, I found another turkey belting out yet another Thanksgiving song to the tune of “I Will Survive.”
