On this Thanksgiving Holiday it’s great to know that mental health professionals are more and more emphasizing GRATITUDE in their therapies and publications. Just one example is Martin Seligman’s book on POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY. While insight about the past can be helpful for some, an attitude of appreciation for life in the here-and-now is a good one, and will prevent such things as “blaming of parents” which might have occurred in the past.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, and may we follow Oprah’s practice of finding five things to be grateful for each day!
