il_570xN.370000643_qgnuThanksgiving is coming up and it is a time when we take time to reflect on the people and things we are grateful for.  During this time, it is important to keep in mind those who may feel lonely, isolated or rejected.  We all want to have that feeling of belonging and a sense of love, but not everyone can be that lucky.  Can you think of someone that may be feeling this way that you can reach out to this season?  I encourage you to do some soul searching and reaching out.

Here are a few things that I am grateful for, not just this Thanksgiving, but all year through:

* my amazing family

* my spirituality

* yoga/meditation

* paperback books

* sunshine

* the ability to have a sense of humor

* knowing the value of true friendship

* pride in myself

* ambition

* the ability to be humble

* serenity

As you get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends, family and loved ones, what are you thankful for?
