As we speed ahead toward the holiday season. Let’s stop for a moment and take time to be thankful. I believe there’s a holiday that celebrates being grateful, but we don’t even take the time to acknowledge Thanksgiving anymore.  It’s just not profitable for business or for consumers. I mean how can you compare a turkey dinner to a tinsel laden tree with an ipad underneath?

Have we let our greed and over consumption taken over what moves us? I for one believe we should enjoy the holidays one at a time celebrate each for what they represent. First with Thanksgiving BE GRATEFUL for what has transpired this year good and bad. Both had something to offer us. Be appreciative for the things we have not resentful for what we don’t have. Feel blessed for the love of family, friends and furry friends because they are blessings.

Be here Now and recognize each moment as one of a kind, each interaction as special and each breath as a miracle – For all of this I am Truly Thankful
