#15 - Active Thanks
Thursday is Thanksgiving. For many, that means you are trying to cram 5 days of work into 4 or 3 or 2. All while adding holiday preparation on top. Being thankful is the last thing on your mind. Hopefully, this short post will be a quick reminder to be thankful this Thanksgiving. When we are thankful for what we have, we are less likely to worry about keeping up with others financially. The comparison trap is a particular temptation when catching up with friends/family over the holidays. Personally, the people in my life are one of the things I am most thankful for. I am going to take action on that thankfulness by sending a quick text to each of my siblings/parents telling them one thing I respect or appreciate about them. Do not forget to be thankful this Thanksgiving, and if you are able, take action on that thankfulness.
