This year especially, a lot of us feel that the list of bad experiences far outweigh the list of reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving.
Mental mindset plays a huge roll in our happiness. Even if things aren't going the way that they were planned out, there is still always something to be thankful for. It may be hard to find the silver lining, but it is there!
So, instead of focusing on the negative this year- flip the script! Can only visit with family via zoom or on the phone? You GET the gift of spending some time talking with them! Plus you don't even have to clean the house or wear pants- lol. Maybe you are able to slow down and appreciate things around you now. Or maybe you have more time to pick up that hobby or skill you have always wanted to learn or fell away from.
This year we have all had to sit with this uncomfortableness and uncertainty. It will get better. There is light at the end of the tunnel. One step at a time and focus on what you have :)
