We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction. In this fast-paced society its easy to take things for granted. There are things that we use everyday to help us keep up with the rapid nature of everything that is around us. But instead of being grateful for all of the things that we do have, a larger part of society chooses to focus on the things that they don’t have or wish that they could have. Thankfulness creates gratitude which generates contentment that causes peace.
The only way to sincerely be joyous in life is for a person to have a vast amount of gratitude for it. You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. Be thankful for everything in your life, from the positive to the negative, and be willing to express it outwardly. Make gratitude part of your daily routine. Whatever happens in your life, no matter how troubling things might seem, do not enter the neighborhood of despair. Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful!
