Thanks. Giving.

Thanksgiving is a great reminder to be grateful for the gifts around you. Not the physical gifts, but the infinite beauty tucked into every corner of your life.

But you needn’t wait until the fourth Thursday in November (USA) or the second Monday in October (Canada) to be thankful, or giving.

What if, instead, you take 90 seconds each morning and write down three things for which you are thankful? What will your list look like? How will it shape your day?

And what if each day you focus on contributing beyond yourself in one small way: a hug, a meal, or just a few minutes of your time? How will this daily giving shape your life?
