Thanksgiving 2010 and Divorce

Divorce shifts your perspective about everything including the holiday season. There is a tendency to look toward the holidays with dread when you are separated or divorced. Change is not always easy, but a gloomy outlook can really become insidious.

The good news is that attitude and perspective are easy to shift. One of the best ways to adopt a new attitude is to practice gratitude. Giving back during the holidays is a sure way to lift your spirit and to heal your heart.

Here are some fun, local ideas for volunteering over the Thanksgiving holiday in Los Angeles:
