The month of gratefulness

by

It is official, the holiday season is upon us…Happy Halloween everyone!

I’m not a big Halloween fan. There have been years when we handed out candy, but for the most part, other than eating candy corn by the bowlful, I typically ignore Halloween. But tomorrow kicks off my favorite part of the the beginning of the holiday season…a month of gratitude culminating with Thanksgiving!

I thought resurrect an old posting habit and challenge the BAD community to participate in a #monthofgratitude challenge. I have been to the very depths of despair financially. And I have had some really amazing wins financially. And, of course, everything in between.

It’s our mindset, our ability to hold on to HOPE for a better time, a better outcome, a better job. So this challenge is about mindset. Every day, the beginning or the end of the day, post on one (or all) of your social media platforms something that you are grateful for. It can be as simple as the moment of silence you get before the house stirs in the morning. Or that the sun is out after rainy, cold weather. Maybe you got a bonus or raise or new job or second job. Maybe your moody teen said thank you – shocker, I know.

But every day for the month of November, post a gratitude post and tag it with #monthofgratitude and #BADCommunity. I want to come find your posts. Tell me, are you in?!

    Well, since I do not participate in any social media I can’t do it electronically but I will make an effort to think grateful thoughts each day. It’s pretty automatic for me anyway because life is so good. Work was an awesome journey and now after six years of retirement with no money issues and a wonderful spouse for the last 44 years it’s hard not to be grateful. I can still play hard tennis, catch lots of fish, hike for miles and mentor students as a volunteer. To borrow a line from a famous personality, I’m doing better than I deserve!

So, what do you think ?
