Happy Thanksgiving

Posted on 25 November 2010 by Stefanie

I was thinking of you and wanted to send you a quick note to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you enjoy your  turkey, pumpkin pie AND next day turkey left-over’s, but especially the time with people that you love!
Many people tell me they spend so much time thinking about what they don’t have yet or what they need to achieve or receive in order to be happy.
This is a great opportunity to be thinking about what we do have right now and appreciate every bit of it.
Is it your health?
Is it your family and friends?
Is it your pet that greets you every time you walk in the door?
Is it your ability to create your own future?
Be thankful for the gift we have to think our own thoughts, and determine our own life.  Be thankful that no-one can take that away from you. We can even be thankful for our own life lessons.
So if life throws you a curve ball or gets you down, think about how warm you are in your bed under your covers and not shriveled in a doorway freezing on the streets. Or how you can go into a bookstore and buy any book to educate you on any religion or skill without censorship or fear of getting locked away in a prison cell.  Or about how many people would gladly change their life with yours to just have access to the opportunities you do, because they know they never will.
Lastly, be thankful for your best qualities of yourself.   I am very THANKFUL to YOU for being you and sharing your gifts with the world.  The world needs you, so thank you for putting yourself out there.
Love yourself & be kind to others!

Vow to live the best of yourself, everyday, starting today. 

I know I am thankful for YOU!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Warmest Regards,

    I thought you should know that this letter is too personal, therefore insincere. We had our Thanksgiving last month. The assumption that I am American is not appropriate. In sales/ marketing we should never “assume” we all know what that means!

    Thanks for the greetings and well wishes.
    My November newsletter shares the spirit of your note.
    Enjoy yourself!

    Dear Stefanie!

    Thank you for your kind message.

    I am greateful for that what is in me: love in my heart.

    We don’t have turkey, pumpkin pie etc. for Thanksgiving in Germany, but everyone can say THANK YOU to God. So do I.

    Life is beautiful and I appreciate your Newsletter.

    Warm regards from the Lake of Constance (Germany)
