I know so many people who have experienced a difficult 2018. Some are celebrating their first holiday without loved ones, some are lonely and afraid of what’s next, some are just trying to keep all the balls rolling and long for a life that doesn’t feel rushed and hurried all the time. Not only will an attitude of thankfulness help during this time, but it is essential to getting through the yuck. It is when you’re in those dark places that you have the most to gain by having a thankful heart. That is when you will feel the power to heal and the power to find hope again.
