Thanksgiving: The expression of gratitude, especially to God or higher power.
It is known in many traditions as the Holiday to give thanks for a harvest and the preceding year. Taught to you as you go through your elementary school years and celebrated across the United States every fourth Thursday in November, but this isn’t a history lesson. I am writing this post to give an in-between the lines look into how I view the wonderful Holiday of Thanksgiving.
If you separate thanks, and giving, you will witness the two most important words one can learn in their lifetime. Why? Giving thanks means you appreciate. Think about it for a second, when you appreciate something doesn’t it give you more love than anything? Appreciation means not complaining, not judging, not being nasty to others; to yourself. When you give appreciation you get it back, but you really have to feel it within your heart. When you give thanks for the love you have, it is proven that you will get it back. The expression of gratitude is giving thanks for all that is before your very eyes, and that is appreciation.
Don’t just give thanks on Thanksgiving, give it every day of your life and to the people you love, every single day! Just ask my Boyfriend, my Mother, my Grandma, my Editor, my Best Friends, my Family and you guys, my readers, I tell you all how much I love you every day! I appreciate everything because I know my blessings. I didn’t really know them until I searched inside myself for my own happiness. I thank god every morning for the top ten blessings I feel need to be expressed with my heart; every morning.
The most two important words one can learn is thanks and giving. Isn’t it funny how simple it is? We all have been taught this for years, celebrated it our whole life and even in some philosophies every Thursday of the year is known to be Thank you Thursday. Give thanks every day, start small, but one thing is for sure your happiness will sky rocket. We all face struggles and giving thanks for the blessings during such a dark time will ensure you get to the light quicker than without. Like any relationship appreciation will bring more, try giving life a thank you every single day. If you already do, fantastic, and if you don’t it won’t hurt to try. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving; eat a lot, enjoy one another, be safe, and have fun!
