In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to remind everyone that we should be taking this time to look around us and give thanks to everything we tend to take for granted. Of course we should give thanks everyday for the blesssings in our lives, but this time of year seems to make us a little more aware. So many times we will wish for people to change their ways or refuse to forgive someone for something they did or said to us, but we should really try out hardest to take this time not to critisize, but to recreate ourselves. We cannot change others, we can only mold ourselves into the people we want to be and hope we influence others to do the same. I urge you to continuously work on your weaknesses while focusing on the positives of the people around you and finding ways you can come together and learn from one another.
