An early Thanksgiving

You are receiving this tip a day early because of Thanksgiving this week in the US.

At this time of year, I am reminded of Nelson Rockwell covers on the Saturday Evening Post magazine. Some of his paintings would include a whole family around a large table with a turkey in center stage. Another had a mother and young son sitting in front of a restaurant window. A commonality between all of these paintings is the feeling of family, and the feeling of thankfulness and appreciation for all they have received this year.

As with most years, this one has brought changes to the people in our lives – births, deaths, storms, changes in health. Yet there is much to be thankful for in each circumstance.

I have learned that one of the laws of the Universe is that what you think about expands. The more you recognize and express gratitude for the good things in your life, the more good things will come to you. The more time you focus on the things that appear to be going wrong in your life, the more problems you will attract.

I encourage you to take time today or tomorrow and make a list of the good things that have happened for you, your family, and your business in the past year. Reflect on how you spent the fourth Thursday in November a year ago and all of the things that have transpired over the past twelve months.

One of the things I am thankful for is having you in my life. I wish you a joy filled holiday.

Happy writing!
