If you want to have a meaningful November, try thankfulness.
For the 5th year in a row, Rebecca at RebeccaWrites is hosting 30 days of giving thanks at her “November of Thanksgiving” celebration.
If you’re a blogger:

It’s easy. It’s quick. It makes a difference.
Participating last year really blessed me, as I looked for ways to see God’s goodness as well as reading how others found His goodness. I anticipate seeing Him in new ways this year as well. More details here.
May this excerpt from Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence
by Sarah Young encourage you to be thankful to Him as it does me.
~ based on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; James 4:8; Romans 15:13
Thank Me frequently as you journey through today. This practice makes it possible to pray without ceasing, as the apostle Paul taught.
If you are serious about learning to pray continually, the best approach is to thank Me in every situation. These thankful prayers provide a solid foundation on which you can build all your other prayers. Moreover, a grateful attitude makes it easier for you to communicate with Me.
When your mind is occupied with thanking Me, you have no time for worrying or complaining. If you practice thankfulness constantly, negative thought patterns will gradually grow weaker and weaker.
Draw near to Me with a grateful heart, and My Presence will fill you with Joy and Peace.
