It's two days before Thanksgiving here in the USA. This morning I've been thinking about the controversial aspect of this "holiday" and decided to focus on the "gratefulness" aspect of it. Gratefulness is a universal attitude that can reframe mindsets and dissipate frustration. The challenge is to look beyond the personal aspects and adopt a wider viewpoint of gratefulness so if you will indulge me for a paragraph before I share finish #17?
I'm grateful for all the courageous people who are calling out dominate cultural views and expanding my point of view on a variety of topics from racism to habitat protection. It has been a year of discovery for me in spite of hardly leaving my little world. I hope their impact on my thoughts and ideas will have a powerful impact on my life going forward.
I'm also grateful for each of you and your interest and support of my blogging and social media posts!! You give more purpose to my life and efforts than you realize.
And finally I'm grateful for that loaf of bread baking in the kitchen and lifting my spirits with it's aroma. Nice that the sun has decided to shine this morning, too!
