Happy Thanksgiving 2008

On this Thanksgiving Holiday, I wish you all a day of warmth, joy and deep gratitude. In the spirit of the day, may we all focus on the bountiful gifts we have received. Whatever state of lack we may be struggling with, may we choose to focus on all that we do have... the true gifts of life and give thanks.

What we focus on expands and grows. Being grateful for all that we haves, draws more of the same to our lives.

If we focus on what we lack, we draw more lack into our lives.

Make a list today of 20 things that you are grateful for. Train your mind to see the glass half full... instead of half empty!

Here's my list:
