THANKS FOR GIVING OR GIVING THANKS

By

Fascinating little holiday that visits with us every year setting up our hearts for the mother of all holidays Christmas. While the emphasis at thanksgiving is on food, let us not forget that more than food is to be shared and was shared in the original gathering that birthed it all. Tough times brought people together then and it should do it now for... misfortune is no respecter of persons

GIVING THANKS

Take a moment to consider your present situation without adding or taking away from it. It is what it is but one thing we can all agree on is that there is always someone worse-off on this planet than we are. The I used to complain about my shoes until I met a man with no feet is not myth or rumor. It's sobering

HOW SIMPLE IT IS TO ASSESS

Do not dishonor your reality by denying or ignoring your present circumstances. The truth one sees about themselves and their situation often is a launching point for better times to come 99% of the time. There are some strong arguments to support this... all common sense driven and obtainable too

CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING

1. We were not put here to be defeated. This makes no sense at all. Why? We would all be gone! Defeat may visit but it is not welcomed or powerful enough to stay. I use it to learn from & strengthen myself

2. Who hasn't gotten to where they are without the help of someone else? Remember this and take a turn to help when presented. We are so beholding ot others we would never catch-up. Get on this

3. It is well to be reminded about having and not having and respecting the dynamic without bias

4. Life: the greatest gift of all was given. Right there is the secret of what to do next. LIVE THAT LIFE!

5. How anyone can walk into a room and not acknowledge people amazes me. How much more than when one sees some person not all there, lacking, wanting or dysfunctional and is ignored. Shame on us

6. When we start thinking about people who aren't where we are, this is the beginning of our loss. The benefit of the doubt in regards to people who are needy should be given to them. At least consider this

7. Mankind has proven that quality interaction with each other that includes food, shelter, clothing, safety and hope is mandatory or we lose our humanity. Don't think so? Behold Billionaires & their folly

8. Just when the case is to be proved against someone who is lacking or hard lucked, pause and consider what makes you so special? There go I but for the grace of God is no idle statement. Respect this

9. Honesty drives quality life and meaning. First to oneself and then others. Easy to say-harder to do

10. We have all been given an invitation to life and are well-equipped for same. Support is welcomed

WHERE IT BOGS DOWN

Many who want to give personally are always aware or wondering if they are being tricked or used. We have reason to suspect but I handle it this way realizing of course to each one to their own way. Either some dialog or inquiry to merit our intervention or unconditional giving and don't look back. Let me add a special note:

NOTE: Is it better to look back and say I am glad I did... or to say I wish I did when it comes to giving. How about a person who has nothing to look back on? That could be problem if it wasn't handled well. 

THANKSGIVING

Its both outside of us and inside of us that is how powerful this holiday is. It is not a story but a living example to be experienced as we go. Think: a movie in which you have the starring role. So does the other guy too but the producer of it all is God. The Director? For that we have a special guest. Your conscience
