Hurricanes, wildfires, shootings, earthquakes, scandals, and an unsettled political environment have people feeling a range of emotions leading into our holiday season.

Feelings from guilt because we are a witness, bystander, or survivor to being anxious and downright scared depending on how much of the news you believe.

For some, it is hard to look forward to this season of thanksgiving without some sense of anxiety or grief.

However, to overcoming these heavy emotions, it is in these moments we should work to shift our focus to giving thanks and celebrating unity more than ever.

Many of the tragic events overshadow some of the wonderful things that are taking place in our country.

Where there has been tragedy, we are also seeing unity, acts of kindness, and selflessness for the benefit of others.

Individuals and communities are coming together to rebuild and help others in need.

Another area for “thankfulness” is in that of our business and economic climate.

In addition, we are seeing record-breaking numbers in the stock market and exponential growth in the franchise industry.
