In the States, this Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. What’s the point, right? Let’s just jump on into Christmas season! The stores are already bustling and everything seems to be bursting with green and red.
I have nothing against Christmas. But I do think there is an important pause, a moment. A time to be thankful. Not to just say a quick word of thanks, then dive into a gut-busting meal. But to be thankful.
To practice gratitude.
Because our brain’s default is on scarcity, not abundance — what we DON’T have, not what we HAVE. Where we AREN’T, not where we ARE.
It’s a matter of mindshift. A choice to shift to abundance, gratitude, and thankfulness. Not just allowing our default setting to take over, looking at the scarcity and the lack. At what scares us.
In this week’s Thriveology Podcast, I discuss “Why Thankful?” Why should we even make the shift?
I wish you a very thoughtful, thankful day filled with gratitude, wherever you are!
