November 25 – Happy Thanksgiving! On this usually festive holiday, many of us will find ourselves unable to travel, staying close to home to stay safe. May we all be safe no matter where we are.

Perspective is looking at the world through someone else’s eyes. The important word is thanksgiving – we are giving thanks for the goodness in our lives – but there are those moments!! What is hidden below the surface? Don't get furious, get curious.

be true to yourself – you MATTER!

Wilma Mankiller, “The happiest people I’ve met regardless of their profession, their social standing, or their economic status, are people that are fully engaged in the world around them. The most fulfilled people are the ones who get up morning and stand for something larger than themselves. They are the people who care about others, who will extend a helping hand to someone in need or will speak up about an injustice when they see it.”
