November Thankfulness: Feeling thankful

Today I am thankful for my experience this month, of looking for things to be thankful for. It's funny, but I am realizing that I SEE what I am looking for. You know, often I hear of some new place, or a name of something that I hadn't heard of before, think about it, and then before the week is out, I will hear it several more times. It seems that where we place our attention is where things show up. If I am looking for something to gripe about, I will find it. If I am looking for something to be thankful for, I find it. And I have so many things to be thankful for in my life, I don't have to look very far.

It just feels better to be in a grateful state of mind than in a critical, disagreeable one. Soooooo, I hope I can continue to be thankful long after November is past.
