Motivational Monday: Being thankful

With so many negative things going on in our individual lives, it can be so easy to lose track of the positives we have going on. Often times we want to gripe and complain about how our boss is a jerk or how teachers live to give their students tons of homework or even how boring it is to just sit at home with nothing to do. We have to learn to be thankful for the opportunities that are coming our way and that we overlook often.

Sure our boss is a bit of a jerk, but let's face it you have a job that enables you to pay bills and even splurge on that pedicure every two weeks. Yeah, your teacher gives you a lot of homework but honestly there are some people who wanted to go to school and couldn't for one reason or another; you were one of the lucky ones. And yes, it can be boring to sit in the house and do nothing, but remember those hobbies you used to have that you neglected because you didn't have time? Well now you have time so use it and maybe that hobby can be your meal ticket.

As we start to gear up for the "holiday of thanks," take some time to think about some things that you've been complaining and upset about and find the silver lining in it. Turn that complaint into a moment of thanks and be thankful.

Today's Motivational Monday quotes, like all of this week's posts, is about being thankful and giving thanks. I hope it helps in making any of your dark clouds a little brighter.

We give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.
