Well, another year has passed and my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is here this week. In my opinion, Thanksgiving is absolutely the greatest holiday on the planet. Plus I turn 40 on Friday.

So it is an excellent time once again to give thanks.

This year, let’s keep it simple.

Life has 3 components: what you have, what you do, and who you are. Having, doing, being.

I’m grateful for all three, and hope in your life you are, too.

I have a great family, good health, and lots of good stuff. More stuff than 99% of the people in the world.

I’m doing just about everything I love to do.

And I am happy, satisfied, and generally at peace.

Not much to complain about, and also lots to look forward to: more travels, more great clients, more business ventures, more great times with my children. And thanks to Sitepoint and its readers for your continued support.

Of course, the above list — having, doing, being — is backwards. Most important, as any spiritual path will tell you, is “being.” If you have the right state of mind and of being, doing and having typically follow.

I wish you a great Thanksgiving and sincerely hope that you are grateful for all that you have in your life.
