GIVING of Thanks.


Thanksgiving. Thanks. Giving.
Everyone talked about what they are thankful for today and while I love that we have a holiday to reflect of the things in our life we are grateful for, it makes me sad to think that sometimes we are accustomed to only remember what they are thankful for during the Holiday Season.
That got me thinking... I didnt want to just post a list of what I am thankful for because I would hope that I can LIVE out my thanks on a daily basis rather than just express it on a day of gratitude. That being said, I mentally dissected the word Thanksgiving. When looked at as a compound word, it is the act of giving thanks. An action word. a verb. not just the name of a Holiday
One of my favorite quotes is "actions speak louder than words". I truly truly believe this to be true and so instead of asking you what you are thankful for... I am going to ask you what you are DOING to show your thanks.
Have you ever have had someone tell you one thing but ACT an entirely different way? Their actions completely negate their words, right?

So, since you reflected on those you were thankful yesterday, I am now going to challenge you (and myself) to take that to the next level and focus on living out your gratefulness for the next 364 days.
