Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and while I have much to be thankful for, I wanted to take this time to write a thankful note to my past self. I got this idea from listening to Daily Jay with Jay Shetty.
Dear past Dan, that just sounds weird:
I want to take the time to thank you. I want to thank you for being a kind, helpful individual. A person who wants to help others, and is willing to lend a hand when able. I want to thank you for believing that you would find someone special to spend your life with. I want to thank you for being a good father and spouse and to continue to be one. I want to thank you for thinking positively when things look down, most of the time. I want to thank you for finding the courage to write this, as a reminder to myself and others that we can do it, and the mind is a powerful thing.
Thank you for helping me reach this moment in my life.
