With the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow in the U.S., thoughts this week naturally turn to giving thanks for all that we have. But this quote from Oprah Winfrey reminds us that giving thanks isn't just important when everything is going great. In fact, it may be even more important when we're having a difficult day, week, month or year.
When you're facing obstacles or tough times, that may be precisely the time to take some time to give thanks for what you do have - remembering that even when the chips are down, you still have much to be thankful for may be just the thing to give you not only perspective, but hope that you'll find a way out of that tough spot.
And who knows - that gratitude may even bring you the spark of an idea about how you can make things better.
