A Thankful Thought to Ponder

While I write this, I sit here upon my chair, pondering the world as it is around me. Today, the day of my favorite holiday, I find it important to not list off a huge post of things I am thankful for. More over I want to take this time to help inspire you to have a better day.

Please take a moment today to contemplate those around you. Your loved ones, your acquaintances, even your "enemies." Take, even if just a few moments, to think about where you have come from, and where you hope to be. In the deepest moment of your thoughts, I want you to remember the fact that, if even one small moment of your life was different, you wouldn't be in the same spot you are today. I can't tell you a specific time from your own existence, but I know for mine, it usually comes down to the flip of a coin. On or off, black or white, yes or no. One answer could have changed your entire existence. Yet, we only realise that in reflection. In the moment, a coin flip seems like just that, a coin flip. Small, unimportant, insignificant. Yet, only when we take the time to consider our past do we realise how much that could have changed our lives.


Now it is not with sadness that we should reminisce about our past, it is with hope, because for every day we live, we gain another day worth of experiences to help push us beyond even the further limits we set for ourselves. It is just important that you always remember, it all starts with a single step, a simple yes or no.


So, today I ask you to remember what is important in your life. I mean truly important. Is it that new electronic? What in this world would you need to wake up another day and use as a building block for a brighter future? It is a question that only you can answer, and it requires you to be brutally honest with yourself, possibly too honest to feel comfortable with. However, whatever your answer, the most important thing is that you took the time to reflect and figure out just where you want to be in this universe, and finding out how you can take that first step to providing a truly inspirational future for yourself.


And with that said, I wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving, and may you all find inner peace doing what you love.
