For many people, getting a jumpstart on Thanksgiving means starting your grocery shopping early. While that may be part of it, what I’m suggesting here is to get a head start on being grateful. Why wait ’til Thanksgiving Day to visit relatives, invite someone who’s alone for a meal, or share your abundance with people who are less fortunate? Today is the perfect day to reach out to others and begin a practice of grateful living.
- Here are 6 great resources to help you take that first step:
