With all the chaos that’s going on around us perhaps you’re not feeling warm and fuzzy. Maybe you don’t feel you have anything to be grateful for.
Still not feeling it? Rather than giving thanks, how about focusing on receiving? Notice when other people are offering you an expression of sympathy or kindness, and take a moment to sit with it and bask in the feeling. It will take some time but it will take an effect on you.
Expressing gratitude is a rewarding habit that affirms the grace of the giver. Gratitude opens our hearts, encourages us to savor each gift that comes our way, and magically frees us from jealously guarding our possessions.
Let’s celebrate today rather than wait for the next level of accomplishment or wealth. It’s a reminder that we can always find a reason to be grateful for something in our life.
Still need a reason to be grateful? You better check your pulse!
To those living in the U.S. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
