We can all agree that this year has been quite a ride. Just when we thought it couldn't get worse, there it was - another surprise. It's involved a whole lot of loss, sickness, natural disasters, and many personal difficulties as well. Now, November comes along and it's "National Gratitude Month" There are two ways to look at it:
What can I possibly be thankful for?
Despite everything that has happened, I am grateful.
Choose option 2. We've said it before, and we'll say it again - gratitude is the highest vibrational state we could be in. When we practice gratitude, our vibrational frequency actually increases to about 540 megahertz. So yes, even 2020 deserves our thanks. Whether you're thankful for your family, your friends, your home, your job, or for the simple fact that you are able to read this blog, just one reason is enough. This month serves as a reminder to be thankful.
History of Thanksgiving
In 1620, the Mayflower left England with over 100 Plymouth colonists and they set sail to find the New World, where they could freely practice their religion and find prosperity. Their journey was chaotic, and on their first brutal winter, half of the pilgrims did not make it. Many suffered from exposure and even outbreaks of contagious diseases. However, in November of 1621, their first corn harvest was successful, and they organized a feast to celebrate.
In this whirlwind of a year, we have become stronger, just as the pilgrims did. While Thanksgiving is only one day, the attitude of gratitude should remain year-long.
It may be a cliché that no day is promised, but if there's anything 2020 has taught us, it's to live every day fully - that's something to be thankful for!
