If you read blogs, and I assume as you are reading this you do, you will most likely be inundated with posts about why we should be thankful today.  Even if your address happens to fall outside the borders of the US, there is still a good chance that a call for thankfulness will be cast at you when you go to take in your daily reading.  And you know what?  Instead of seeing the same thankful message over and over again as a tired repetitive drone, I am choosing to look at each blog post, tweet, whatever as a blessing.  And I’ll tell you why.

I enjoy this time of year as much as, if not more so, many of the people around me.  I love the weather turning colder here in the US, I love the holiday decorations going up around downtowns and parks, I love the Christmas tree vendors on the side of the road under big white tents.  People are a little bit nicer, unless you are in a mall parking lot, and family get to visit with each other and do the annual dance of talking without approaching politics or religion.  Good times!
A bit snarky maybe?  I don’t mean to be honestly, but really I am guilty of the very thing I am talking about NOT doing above.  I will gladly lay the blame at the feet of the Christmas ads and commercials for jading us too early in the year.  Really, it seems they start up earlier every year, leaving us weary over the whole thing by the time the actual days of celebration arrive.  We must fight this and take our favorite time of year back from the consumerist weapons put against us.

No, I am not talking about boycotting anything.  I say you not only read more positive personal thoughts of happiness than ever, you savor every single word that your eyeballs fall upon.  Accept and embrace when someone is being honestly thankful, they are at least making the effort to see the world in a more positive light.  That said, I don’t think anyone will argue, we could all use a bit more positivity in our lives.  So I WILL read blogs from everyone, much like this one, wishing health and cheer to all.  And before I read those words, I will gag and bind the inner Scrooge, kick him out the front door, and let world be a happier and more thankful place.  In fact, I will start you off.  I am thankful for my family, friends and you, yes you, whoever you are.  Now go pass it on and tell someone how thankful you are.
