Thankful Thursday Week 2

In the spirit of the holiday season coming upon us and Thanksgiving in a few weeks, we've decided to initiate Thankful Thursdays for the month of November. The idea is to internally reflect on what we're thankful for each week, share that with you, and hopefully encourage you to do the same on some level. We’re posting on Instagram using #ThankfulThursday and would love to see some posts from all of you! 

This week, I’m thankful for the power of positivity

This week especially, I am aware of the fact that I am blessed.  Living a world that seems to hurt for no reason, it feels like now more than ever is a time to be thankful and count my blessings. Earlier this week, I was having a really hard time coming to terms with the fact that our nation is so torn. Last week, Allie wrote about the attack in NYC and a little over a week later, there was another violent attack.  It seems like there isn't a lot to be thankful for when there are so many awful things happening, but I have made a personal goal this month to be more mindful. Being mindful for me is recognizing the fact that yes bad things happen, but also wonderful, kind, courageous acts happen every minute of every day. Instead of looking for the bad and dwelling in negativity, I am choosing to embrace the positive and share it with others. This week I am thankful for the power of positvity especially when embraced with negativity. You have the power to make someones day with just one act of kindness! A smile, a wave, a card- it doesn't have to be big, but it does have to come from a positive place!
