Why be Thankful?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 26, 2015

Happy Thanksgiving!

For those not in the U.S. – Happy Thursday!

Today is a day of gratitude here in the U.S., and I’ve got a lot to be grateful for. It’s also a nice little vacation. My eldest daughter is home this weekend from school, which is awesome. And what does she want to do this weekend? PLAY VIDEO GAMES. Among other things, but that’s a high one on her list. I don’t know where she picked up that habit… 😉 I have some days off of the day job, which I intend to spend working on Frayed Knights 2, but I’ll probably spend just as much or more time enjoying time with friends and family. We have a lot going on. Sitting back and slinging dice with my friends and my kids in board games and RPGs is a great way to recharge the ol’ batteries.

There’s plenty to gripe about and a lot of thing going on in the world to be seriously worried about. But I set a goal a few years ago to try to focus on the positive. There’s a spiritual aspect of this, but stripping that part out, it’s still based on a reasonable belief that you will tend to drift towards that which you focus on. If you focus on the good stuff in life and the opportunities that are available, you’ll find more of them. They may have been there all along, but you’ll be more attuned to seeing them – and thereby take advantage of them.

So yeah, being thankful and a little bit of an optimist may have benefits in life. Something to think about… 🙂
