let us not forget to be grateful
Hey, hey, hey there reader. I'm baaaccck! Is it sooner or later than when you thought you'd see me again? It is a little sooner than I thought it would be if that makes you feel better. What brings me back to this lovely forum so soon is the fact that my personal favorite holiday is coming up and I think it is important to take any/every opportunity to you can to identify what you are grateful for.
To address the first part of that last statement, yes reader THANKSGIVING is my favorite holiday. Not Christmas. Not Halloween. Thanksgiving. I am also one of those people who loathes when others jump the gun and celebrate Christmas the instant November hits. So if you are one of those Christmas lovers well, I can say that your decision to celebrate holidays non-chronologically annoys the f*** out of me, there is nothing I can do about what you do in your own home and if it makes you happy, you gotta do you.
The second half of that statement speaks to the benefits of gratitude and identifying what we are thankful for. I may or may not have mentioned before I work in mental health. That being said, the emotional and mental benefits of displaying gratitude are plentiful. Enhancing empathy, decreasing aggression, better sleep, improved self-esteem, healthier relationships, reducing stress, and increasing resiliency just to name a few. To regularly identify things we are thankful for can build a basis of positivity for one's life and produce long-lasting benefits to one's overall health.
