I want to wish you and your loved ones a very happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day is the perfect time to grab a journal, or just sit quietly for a moment, and give thanks for all the blessings you have in your life. There are many people in the world who are starving right now, who have no roof over their head, who dream of one day reaching the life you have right now. Give thanks for your joys, give hugs to your friends and family, and treasure the day.
Yes, there might be a few people who don't quite appreciate your dreams and goals. That is OK. We are all different. This is the day to smile at their odd jokes, to nod when they say something they think is funny, and to enjoy that turkey or pumpkin pie or whatever your chosen treat is. We all have our little quirks.
If you really get stuck with a grumpy person, count to ten. It's a cliche, but it works. Go for a walk, go read a book, find someone else to talk to. Live your life, and find your path to joy!
Our forums are online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to answer whatever question is stressing you! Come on by and post your problem, we'll chime in with an answer.
For example, a fourteen year old is sure she is going to marry her boyfriend. What sort of advice would you give her? Come by and chime in!
Thanksgiving Day Tip
Family often knows exactly how to "push your buttons". They say the exact right thing to annoy you. Think of it as practice in being calm! Fake them out - don't react to their jibes. Remember, what really matters is what YOU think of your life, what YOU think of your path. If you are content with your world, then that is all that matters. You don't have to justify to anyone else why you are moving in the direction you are. Living well is often the best revenge. Be you, and be happy.
