As we are closing in on the Thanksgiving holiday, yes, let’s be thankful. And health is at the top of the list. You expect me to say that. Right? But what makes us healthy?
One important aspect of good health is friendship. Not everyone will love us, we know that. But to feel that deep sense of friendship where you accept the person for who they are, and feel accepted by them, can make many burdens lighter. Friendship is the spice in life. The right kind of friendship helps us see ourselves better. It helps us love ourselves even when we are not perfect! It helps us continue when things are difficult and life brings difficulties!
Let’s be thankful for friends, real friends. It is especially wonderful when family can be friends. It is a great time of year to re-access your friendships and see where you want to spend your time and energy. Everyone has limits on time and energy. Inside we know who to be grateful for in our lives. Nurture that!
