WHAT I’M MOST THANKFUL FOR The Amazing Qualities of Life

Thanksgiving is coming up at the end of the month, so naturally, I wanted to take the time to talk about thankfulness. For me, gratitude is being thankful for what you have and appreciating everything in your life. Everyone seems to want the latest and greatest thing — the newest phone, car, or computer. But I like to think about how lucky I am already. You can always get a better house or work toward improving your business. But instead of craving more, I think it’s important to be thankful for what’s in your life right at this moment. I don’t have the newest technologies, but I’m grateful for everything that I do have. I know that my family is lucky compared to many, and I never take it for granted. “Everyone seems to want the latest and greatest thing — the newest phone, car, or computer. But I like to think about how lucky I am already. You can always get a better house or work toward improving your business. But instead of craving more,

What I’mmost grateful for this year is having a happy and healthy family. Now that we have two kids, it’s not only my health that’s in the forefront of my mind. I’m so very thankful that Conor and Liam are in perfect health and have only faced minor illnesses growing up. I know that there are so many things that can go wrong with kids when they’re as young as my two sons. Knowing that my boys are so strong and healthy, well, words can’t describe how grateful I am for that. Even before Conor and Liam were born, I was thankful for many things. I appreciated having Nicole by my side, a house to come home to, food on the table, a car I could rely on, a successful business, and my own well- being. Everything shifted when Conor was born. The most important things for me suddenly became my desires to be a good father, provide for my family, and make sure my child remained healthy. I am truly grateful to have Conor, Liam, and Nicole in my life. Something that I’ve found useful and encouraged others to do as well is to write down the things you’re grateful for. It’s a powerful way to remind yourself how wonderful your life is. Making this list allows you to physically see all your blessings. This Thanksgiving, I want to encourage you to take some time and write down the things you’re grateful for — even if they’re small.

I think it’s important to be thankful for what’s in your life right at this moment.”

That’s a big thing for me — putting everything into perspective. Many people don’t realize how amazing their lives are. It’s true that everyone faces hardships, but I believe it’s essential to take time to really think about all you have. Most of us reading this are at home, have a warm bed to crawl into, have a fridge filled with food, and work and earn a living. More importantly, we have family and friends we can rely on. I believe it’s important to realize all you have —whether it’s all the things I mentioned or only a few of them— because there are many people around the world who don’t have even these basic comforts.

From all of us at NOVA Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we hope you and your family have a fantastic Thanksgiving. Happy Holidays!
