We have much to be thankful for!

A Note From Sue

A note from Sue

Hope everyone is enjoying this warm and cozy time of the year!
 
I’d like to take this opportunity to let each of you know how thankful and grateful I am for our friendship and business relationships, they mean so much to me.
 
Thanksgiving time inspires me to remember to be extra thankful and grateful.
 
Being thankful is one of the quickest ways to bring happiness and contentment into our lives. When feeling depressed or down a sure-fire way to feel better is to say out loud and journal about what we are grateful and thankful for.
 
There is a special magic to writing things down. Writing down what we are grateful and thankful for can lead to a sense of contentment and joy. We all have so much to be thankful for. In today’s materialistic society it can be easy to get lost in working hard to make money to buy those things vs. being grateful and content with what we have.
 
November is National Gratitude Month, here’s a nice article on gratitude.

Stuff To Do In the Community:

~ Enjoy the Fall colors at The Henry Ford House in Grosse Pointe. You can visit the grounds for only $5.00 each for the whole day. What a great thing to do with your family. Make a picnic, bring a blanket and hang out by the beautiful Lake St. Clair. You can watch the water and boaters go by and see the beautiful gardens.

~ Take a stroll down memory lane at the world-famous Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.
 
~ Check out Belle Isle and all it has to offer!!  A stroll on the waterfront or a leisurely drive around the island does a soul good. Nothing like fresh air and beautiful fall colors to make us feel alive! Visit a Cider Mill and eat lots of yummy donuts and cider.

Less Is Now
 
We live in an age of easy shopping conveniences. Never has it been so easy to order online, and have it quickly shipped to our doorstep. Making it easy to order things we don’t really need or will use.

This weekend I watched a great documentary on Netflix called “Less is Now.” It is about 2 guys I have followed on Facebook called “The Minimalists”. It is their story of working so hard to get lots of nice things, nice cars, nice homes etc. Only to discover their quality of life was not good because the purpose they sought was from according materialistic things. These things did not bring the long-term happiness they thought it would. They found themselves working very long hours with not having time to enjoy all of those material possessions. The documentary is about their journey to a more simple and happy life thru the releasing of these possessions and being minimalists.

They make a challenge in the documentary to release 1 thing a day then 2 things per day for 30 days. I am doing it now and it feels great to release even the little things I am not using and don’t need. It is especially pleasing when we can give things we don’t need to someone who will use them or to a charity.

I’d love to hear about your experience with the challenge if you decide to do it 😊
