Greetings All: Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m sure most of you are having a modified holiday due to current conditions. I genuinely hope that everyone can step back and recognize something to be thankful for this year. As I reflect back on this year, I find it necessary to think about all that has happened and remind myself of what didn’t happen. Often times that is more important than what did happen to us.

I’m sure glad we’re not in the restaurant business, or the airline industry, or the cruise ship field. Thoughts and prayers go out to those who are. Whatever your situation, I’m almost certain that things could be worse. Not saying it’s easy, but looking for the silver lining in your cloud is good for your health.

That’s how I am feeling this holiday season! In spite of everything going on in the world, every day we are given a choice: live in fear or live in faith. Fear and faith cannot occupy the same space and whichever one you choose to focus on, it will most certainly grow. Where focus goes, energy flows!

“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.” — Zig Ziglar

Till next month.

Best Regards,

Rick Lindemann
