I know you've seen other friends on Facebook doing it. Why not you?

Believe it or not, taking everyday to say what you're thankful for in the month of November has positive benefits for you.

You hear it from the cynical ones: "Why are you doing it just for the month of November?" "You should be thankful everyday not just for a month." "It's annoying to read your posts every day."

You know what? Who cares what those people think! You read enough in the newspaper, see the tragedy on the news everyday. Why not think of the good things in your life and remember them? Start your day on a good note and it will continue throughout the rest of the day.

Whether you do it publicly on Facebook or privately in a journal or in your prayers, be thankful. There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for.

This month, I will do it publicly on Facebook. I try to only post happy things. Sure, we all go through bad times whether it be with finances, people, sickness, vehicles. But let's focus our minds and hearts on the good things that keep us going and give us something to live for. It could be a child, a talent, a future happening. Keep those things in mind and you're sure to have a better attitude in November. And just maybe, it will become a habit and you'll be a happier and healthier person.
