Today is Thanksgiving. What is the first thing that comes to your head when you think about this holiday? Is it turkey? Family? Traditions? An attitude of gratitude?
This month, I have been posting a picture a day of blessings in my life, some were a little silly and some a little more serious. I’ve had to take a reprieve from the daily postings because I don’t have my camera connection with me at the moment. I’ve been feeling guilty, not posting like I was. My stress level was rising.
Then I stepped back to look at what I was doing. I was treating gratitude like a trendy commodity. There is nothing wrong with being thankful for what you have, but it was all about the presentation. It was about the clever words and perfected pictures.
I will probably catch up with my pictures this month, but hopefully I can keep this thought in mind.
My thankfulness should be more than a 30 day list of blessings. It’s more than lip service on a Thursday afternoon. It’s about my words and my actions. It’s living a life of continued gratitude. And it’s something I am still learning every day.
