“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you’re reading this, thanks.
Thanks for taking valuable time out of your day to listen to what I have to say.
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your story and thanks for being a part of mine.
Sometimes I’m fortunate enough to write things that move people in a positive way. I’m grateful for all of you who’ve taken the time to let me know when I’ve had such an effect on you.
No one owes me their attention or constructive feedback. Yet, when I’m privileged enough to receive it, I am always grateful.
Thank you for that.
Tomorrow I plan to enjoy a day off work while I celebrate Thanksgiving with my wife and a few friends from college.
It’s going to be a good time. I’ve already made up my mind.
Whatever you have planned, I hope it’s a good time as well.
And here’s today’s two cents:
Give thanks by giving others something to be thankful for. Whether you celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving or not, take advantage of every possible excuse for expressing appreciating and inspiring others to do the same.
