What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal. -Albert Pine
This saying is the truth! It definitely relates to Thanksgiving because It is a time to help others. Being selfish is death and being selfless is immortal for sure. Do you help out anyone for non monetary reasons? What charities do you donate to and why? Do you volunteer?
I haven’t been able to volunteer lately, the little ones make it hard. I do donate to things like Toys for Tots, things for foster children and homeless people.
There’s a self expansive aspect of gratitude. Very possibly it’s a little known law of Nature the more gratitude you have, the more you have to be grateful for. -Elaine St. James
Thanksgiving is a time for us to reflect on things we have done throughout the year. Did we achieve what we wanted to or at least put things into motion that continues us on the path to achieve those goals?
It is a time that when I sit down to begin creating my lie plan for next year I think about all the things I am grateful for, things I am appreciative of, things I have really worked hard towards and now I am enjoying the results of those seeds.
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
-Johannes A. Gaertner
So here are some things I have found about Thanksgiving. Tell me in the comments about your own Thanksgiving celebrations.
