If there is any habit we should all be cultivating, it’s gratitude and Thanksgiving Day is a particularly potent reminder of the power in being grateful. Rhonda Byrne, Creator of the phenomenally successful movie The Secret, has also written several books and my favorite by far is The Magic, which is about gratitude. So let me quote directly from Rhonda herself (p167):
” … gratitude is your best friend. It is always there for you, always available to help you, it will never fail you or let you down, and the more heavily you lean on it, the more it will do for you, and the more it will enrich your life.”
Cynicism is not a powerful life strategy, but gratitude is and we can always find something to be grateful for or to appreciate, even if sometimes we have to look really hard. If you don’t believe that, give gratitude a sincere try and you will find your life transforming before your eyes.
Happy Thanksgiving! My sincerest wish for you is that every day will be a Thanksgiving Day for you.
