Happy Thanksgiving holiday

Mark Dombeck, Ph.D. Updated: Nov 23rd 2006

It's the Thanksgiving holiday here in the USA today; my personal favorite holiday, because it is not terribly commercial, it is about family and food, and most of all because it is all about gratitude; being grateful for what you have that is good in your life. It may seem simplistic, but maintaining a positive attitude concerning the events of your life is a good way to help maintain your mental health (as our Emotional Resilience topic center documents). I wrote an essay about Thanksgiving and gratitude a few years ago, titled "Gratitude: The Antidote To Desire", that might be worth your time to read over (if you are here already, why not?). Happy Thanksgiving holiday, everyone.
