Imagine a world where no one helps you. Despite your asking and pleading, no one helps you. Now imagine a world where many people help you all of the time for no other reason than that they like you.

Our memories are who we are, and they are not set in stone. Memories of events, people, everything we experience can change over time. We can remember things as being worse than they actually were, as being longer or shorter, as being funnier, people as being kinder or crueler, as being more or less interesting, etc. Experiencing gratitude in the present makes us more likely to remember positive memories.

The list goes on and on, but you get the idea. In fact, living out your gratitude does just about everything from making you look better and more inclined to exercise to washing your underwear (well, almost that).
Gratitude helps us realize what we have, and awareness of what we're grateful may reduce the tendency to want more all the time. Notice your everyday world from the viewpoint of gratitude. It’s astounding the good things we take for granted, and the not-so-good things we focus on. So be thankful on Thanksgiving for all the wonderful things in this world, and even some of the not-so-wonderful. Be grateful every day you live and in the way you live, and things will be better than ever.
HAPPY TURKEY DAY!
