Here's an Idea: Celebrate Thanksgiving By Saying Thank You

I'm thankful.

No, my life isn't perfect. Far from it.

Despite things I wish I could change, there are still plenty of reasons to be thankful.

And plenty of people to be thankful for.

As we near Thanksgiving, here's something  we can all do to be thankful.

Make a list of people who have believed in you, cared for you, invested in you and have loved you unconditionally. Then find a way to tell them thank you. And not just a generic thank you, but a detailed note that explains why you are so thankful for them in your life.

One final suggestion. Do it in a personal way. A phone call, a handwritten letter, etc. Something that shows you took time and didn't opt for the convenience of a text message. If you are super ambitious, try to do one every day until Thanksgiving.  

I write these blogs as conversation-starters. Tell me someone you are thankful to have in your life.
