Be the reason this Thanksgiving

Be the reason this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is, hands down, my favorite holiday. It’s the one day that most people actually pause collectively to appreciate others – family members, friends, employees, and those who have shown acts of kindness – and spend quality time, often over dinner, to connect with loved ones and associates.

My pastor offers a different view for Thanksgiving 2012. He suggests that in addition to being thankful for life’s blessings, we should strive to be the reason why others give thanks. By giving of ourselves to the needs of others (a kind word, encouragement, selfless action, compliment, etc.), we are taking Thanksgiving to a higher level.

Five things you can do:

  1. Become a mentor to a high school or college student
  2. Babysit for a co-worker who needs a break to do Christmas shopping
  3. Volunteer for an hour at a nonprofit organization whose mission you admire
  4. Invite a Veteran who is just returning from overseas for holiday dinner at your home
  5. Pay one month’s mortgage or rent for someone who recently lost his/her job

On behalf of Ask The Strategist/KSG Strategic Consulting/Career Connect USA, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you become the reason why others give thanks!
