Thanksgiving is rounding the corner, and what better quotes to use than those that honor the soul of Thanksgiving. The November Thoughts to Inspire focuses on the reasons we should be thankful this season. They inspire us to acknowledge how truly blessed we are. Sometimes it is harder to see that, especially if there is a recent loss of a loved one, or other hardship, but even if those events have affected you, there are still many other reasons to be grateful.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. -Mahatma Gandhi

If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more? -unknown
It always seems impossible until it is done. -Nelson Mandela
We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. -Ronald Reagan
I hope that these inspirational quotes have motivated you to give some thought to your own situation. What are you thankful for and how will you acknowledge that this season?
I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
