 As we are approaching the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to take this opportunity to write about gratitude.  Thanksgiving is about giving thanks and being grateful for the blessings in our lives.  Gratitude isn’t always easy.  Sometimes life can seem overwhelming.  Maybe your health isn’t where you want it to be.  Or maybe, just maybe your fitness and nutrition plans have taken a backseat to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  Even in these circumstances, it’s important to take some time to think about the blessings you have in your life.  Consider the joy you get from your family and friends.  Be grateful for your job (this is sometimes a challenge, but you can at least be grateful for the paycheck). Be grateful for the roof over your head, the clothes on your back, and the food in your belly.  Consider the men and women in the military who are away from their families while protecting our freedom – be grateful for them.  Be grateful for the sunrise and sunset – even on cold, snowy days.  It’s easy to get caught up thinking about all of the things that are lacking in our lives and the struggles that seem to preoccupy our minds.  Thanksgiving is the time of year when we should focus on blessings and be thankful.  Happy Thanksgiving!  I’m grateful for all of you 🙂
