5 Tips for a (Truly) Happy Thanksgiving

1. Lighten up. Life is short. Live today like it could be your last.

2. Expect nothing. That way everything you receive is a blessing.

3. Don’t get your panties in a wad. (That’s a southern thing, it means #1 lighten up.) Let things rolls off your back. Don’t get offended — because when you get offended, it’s actually more about you than the other person. Take note of it, realize it’s a day to be thankful, and choose gratitude.

4. Look for the best in others. Give compliments.

5. Find things you are thankful for, and focus all your energy on that. Being thankful spreads joy. And joy is the most beautiful gift you can give.

Wishing you the best,
