However, I’d like to add one thing that people usually DON’T give thanks for – “PROBLEMS”
You’d be hard pressed to hear at any thanksgiving table around the country, “Thanks for the economic crunch, thanks for the hurricanes, thanks for getting me fired, thanks for the root canal, thanks for ripping me off…” or any thing like that.
However, we have to keep in mind that on some level, we’ve attracted these things in our lives… Most likely to learn a lesson, but we DID attract them – so we should be just as thankful.
Not necessarily for the thing itself, but for the fact that we needed to learn something or grow in a certain area, so we ASKED for the appropriate lesson – and the universe provided.
That’s something to be thankful for!
Because if we can’t be thankful that we’ve attracted perceived negative things, how can we be thankful for attracting positive things? They’re two sides of the same coin.
Now, this isn’t meant to ruin your thanksgiving… so please don’t take it the wrong way…actually it’s meant to give you hope and vision for a brighter future.
Because, if you know that you’ve attracted ALL the things that occur in your life, you can attract whatever you want.
If you want a Thanksgiving mantra that sums this up… here ya go:
I am truly thankful for all aspects of my life. I know that everything that appears in my life (whether perceived positive or negative) is explicitly attracted to me – by me – for my own growth and enlightenment. I’m thankful that the universe responds to my every request; therefore, I am empowered to choose anything I want. With peace, love and gratitude, I embrace all that awaits me.
Of course, you can use your own variation… just thought this would be a good start for you.
And oh yeah…Happy Thanksgiving
