Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the US. It's often a day of feasting and merriment with friends and family. It's also a day that's set aside to reflect upon the things we have to be thankful for. But really, any day can be a day to be thankful, right? In fact, I see this as an essential key to a serene life.
Many of you will be busy tomorrow with "real" life, caught up in the rush of cooking and celebration with friends and family. The Serenity Challenge+ to you for this Thanksgiving week is to find a few quiet moments to list some of the things you are thankful for. They can be tangible or intangible things, simple or complex things, but things that you are really thankful for.
Here's 10 things I am really thankful for:
* God's mercy
* A great roommate
* A peaceful home
* A nice TV
* A computer
* A new 20" monitor
* A speedy internet connection
* Some cool computer games
+ The Serenity Challenge is an idea that cat_irix suggested. It's a challenge to experiment with ways that can help us find more inner peace. Thanks to Irix for the suggestion!
