Thanksgiving Reminds Us That We Have So Much to be Thankful For

Happy holiday, funny tree with balloonsIt’s the start of the holiday season as we celebrate Thanksgiving with our family and friends. We’re inspired to feel that life is good.

As we have in the past, we turn to the writer and poet Maya Angelou who has a magic touch with words and expressions that gets to the heart of the human experience.

She reminds us that there is hope for the future and that we should cherish what we have and lend a helping hand to those who aren’t as fortunate as we are.

From Maya Angelou:

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. 

I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’ve learned that “making a living” is not the same thing as “making a life.”

I’ve learned that sometimes life gives you a second chance.

Maya Angelou

I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I am thankful this Thanksgiving for my loving husband and daughter, my friends and exceptional clients.

What are you thankful for as we begin the holiday season? Please share your thoughts below – and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
