Giving thanks...

HI everyone! I know that it has been a while since I posted last. Been wrapped up in a lot of other things as of late and have not been able to keep on top of it. I am going to try from here on out to be more consistent with my posts.
I am going to keep this entry short. In a day or so I will be posting again about my past, present and future plans and projects.

Firstly, I wanted to talk about the subject of thanksgiving. As I sit here this morning I realize that even though there is a lot going on in my life right now, I have so much to be thankful for. I could only focus on my problems and negativities and allow them to drag me down or I can recognize both and achieve some sort of balance. Often times in life, we tend to focus on all the negative things. We let problems and negativities dominate our lives. In a sense we become slaves to them. There are plenty of people out there who let their problems define them.
Truth be told Almost all of us have many more things to be thankful for than we do problems. When we take time everyday to think of what we are thankful for it can really put our problems into perspective, often times making them easier to resolve.

It is also my firm belief that thanksgiving is the most sincere form of prayer because you are not asking for anything. Often times when people pray they are in a bind or they need something. Rarely do people just give thanks for being alive, for friends and family, the food they eat or the earth just to name a few.
When you try and exist in an open state of thanksgiving you will be in for a pleasant change in your point of view. You will get more joy out of life, and your problems just might be a little easier to deal with knowing you have some wonderful things in your life!
As I said before, there will be another post in a few days about what is going on with me as of late. I have some great news about my latest projects that I think you will all be excited about. Stay tuned!
