Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada. Whether you’re Canadian or not, feeling thankful EVERY DAY is beneficial to our health, and research in gratitude backs this up. In this post, I’d love to publicly give my thanks for my blessings in hopes that it triggers your gratitude.
Live Lighter Blessings
In Life Happens: Sporadic Posting Notice, you’ll know that I’m on a new adventure in a new apartment and haven’t had time in the last month or so to write posts for you. I’d like to take the time right now to thank all my guest bloggers who submitted interesting and informative articles to keep this blog running in my absence. This blog would have been stagnant and boring without your assistance. Thank you!
Next, a BIG thank you to all you readers out there who read Live Lighter posts, pass them on to your friends and who keep coming back for more. And an even bigger thanks to all you courageous readers who take the time to comment. I love you! It means SO MUCH to me to know you receive value from visiting Live Lighter. Every reader contributes something special to this blog – thank you for keeping it alive!
On an even more personal note, I feel SO blessed for all my loving friends and family who’ve supported me during my recent life event and spiritual kick-in-the-ass. I’m still pleasantly wheeling and overjoyed with the realization just how much I’m loved. Thank you all for your offers to assist me in this life transition.
To all those who I accepted help from: thank you for listening to me, being a shoulder to cry on, helping me find my apartment, offering your home to me temporarily in case I didn’t find a place in time for my move date, moving me and keeping me as emotionally stable as possible by reminding me of all the good things in my life. I cannot express in words my gratitude for you. You’re angels and I will ALWAYS remember your kindness, unselfishness and friendship.
Finally, a HUGE thank you to my new housemates and very gracious landlord. You’ve all helped greatly in my transition, made me feel welcomed and cared for – even though you’ve only just met me! I’m both surprised and humbled what you’ve all done to help me feel comfortable here. I’m looking forward to creating strong and mutually beneficial relationships with you – I will heal very soon and regain the energy to provide you selfless acts of kindness, too.
Thanks to SHAPE Readers – A Live Lighter Special Announcement!
With all these thank yous, I’d be remiss to neglect all the SHAPE readers who nominated Live Lighter for the SHAPE Blogger Awards in their overall healthy living category!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone I’ve mentioned in this post and all those I’ve unintentionally forgot – though, I think I covered everyone. 😉 So, dear Readers, I’d love to hear everything YOU’RE grateful for in your life. Please share a list as long as you like!
