I cannot believe that the end of the year is so close. Why is it when we get older time starts to move faster, holidays do not feel the same as when we were kids and being excited about life decreases? November is my second favorite month. Being thankful for things and others is encouraged more in this month than in other months. I think it is important that we tell our friends and family how much they mean to us. The first of every month is always a special day. It is a time to make a bucket list of goals you hope to accomplish and things you wish to do.There is so many things we can be thankful for, and we need to take advantage of life. There are people for one DEAD. There are children in hospitals battling severe illnesses. The fact that God woke us up this morning is a huge blessing. We do not have to worry about where we’re going to sleep at night or where our next meal is going to come from. I feel like even being alive is such a blessing. We need to appreciate life more.


Thinking of reasons to be thankful can better our mental health. Engaging in gratitude can potentially increase a better outlook on life, build more enlightening relationships with people around you and simply decrease pain physically and mentally. Everyday try to write down one thing you are thankful for this month! To kick off the Holiday season, repeat these words of Thanksgiving, “I am thankful that I have access to a computer to read this article and browse the internet, I am thankful for the people around me and I am thankful for being alive”


Lets show an increasing amount of gratitude and thanksgiving this holiday season!

Psalm 107:1: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

Have an Awesome, Holly, Jolly, Thankful Holiday Season.
