Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers in the United States. Although this year has been difficult in some ways, I genuinely have much to be thankful for this year. One of my practices for nearly a decade has been to keep a “thanks log” of things that happen to me that I should remember to be thankful for. I’ve never been into journaling. So I just make this a simple dated bullet point list in a Word document. It’s good to review at Thanksgiving, at the end of the year, or whenever I need to remind myself of all the things that have gone right in my life. By nature we tend to focus on what’s going wrong, but it’s also important to remind ourselves of all the things that have gone well.
