This November, our word of the month in my martial arts school is Gratitude. We, in the United States, have one day a year (Thanksgiving) celebrating gratefulness, being thankful for our blessings and way of life. I am teaching this month that we should be thankful every day. Think of all the wonderful things we have. Our homes, cars, money, jobs, food, clothing, and so many different things. I have traveled to other countries (my wife Alex is from Romania, a former communist country. She has a story to tell!) and have seen first hand how blessed we truly are in America. All I am asking my students is to truly look around and be Grateful to their parents for everything their parents give them. So this Thanksgiving season, let’s all just look around and see how blessed we are.
