What a special time of year this is! As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, it also marks the countdown to Christmas, and the excitement of children everywhere. Then in a blink of an eye, it’s time for New Year’s!
It’s a great time to stop and give pause, to think of the things we are grateful for. And, as the year comes to a close, to look back upon the triumphs of the days that just passed. It’s often amazing to realize what changes may have taken place and what blessings may have come our way.
As Thanksgiving often reminds us to be “thankful”, it begs the question, “What are some ways to experience gratefulness?”
Slow down– What?!? Who has time to slow down? There is so much to do… But, taking some time to unwind and be purposeful and less hurried will help clear your mind and allow you some space to see some everyday things that you can be grateful for.
Be grateful on purpose– Sometimes it is hard to see the good in all things, like challenges or bad news, but by stepping back and thinking about how these things could potentially help you or shape your future, you can be grateful for learning through the experience.
Keep a journal – Thinking of things you appreciate, and then writing them down can help you see the good in everyday life. And, if a difficult day or situation comes along, you can look back on what you have written and be reminded of what you are grateful for even during a trying time.
Volunteer – Finding a hobby or organization that allows you to give back to others or your community can promote a grateful mindset. Seeing how your time or talent can positively affect someone else is good for promoting thankfulness.
Spend time with friends or family that you care for– Being around loved ones that you share a bond or common interest with promotes a feeling of belonging and satisfaction that can enhance your gratitude.
There are so many ways to experience and share gratitude. We hope during this season, you’ll find yourself with a grateful heart.
Here at Conroe’s Incredible Pizza Co., we feel so blessed to have the opportunity to see our guests celebrating with friends and family, and we are grateful for this community. Without our dear guests, we couldn’t do what we do! From our family to yours, we thank you for your support and appreciate you so very much!
As a reminder, we want our employees to spend time with family and friends on the Thanksgiving holiday, so we will be closed on Thurs., Nov. 28, but we will re-open on Fri., Nov. 29, at 11 a.m. We wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
