Giving thanks for what we have validates all that we have.
Try taking it a step further, be intuitive, give thanks, and have gratitude for what you have not yet received. This may not be logical, but it is very intuitive.
Having gratitude for what you have not yet received declares that it is already manifesting in your life and will soon be complete. This creates abundance.
See your goals and the life you desire manifesting around you, making space and setting the energy for those creations. Be grateful now for what is being created.
Warm regards and Happy Thanksgiving.
