Welcome to this edition of The Metro Message.....I hope all of you had a fantastic Halloween weekend filled with fun, relaxation, and some candy. Are you truly thankful for all the things you currently have? Are you truly thankful for all the people you have met and are surrounded by? Are you truly thankful for all the situations you have been through - the good and the bad? The fine art of being thankful is very easy to master. You must drop all your preconceived notions about how things should be and start taking things for how they are. Yes, of course we should want to work hard and improve ourselves personally and professionally. The things that happen to us are mostly out of our control. The one thing that is always in our control is how we look at what it is that happens to us. Take more control today - NOT over what happens to you, but rather the way you look at it. Be thankful always and forever.
