It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and a great time to talk about thankfulness and gratitude.
I am as always thankful for my friends and family. For my clients. For the technology that allows me to do what I do and to stay connected with people around the world. I am grateful to you for taking the time to read this and I am hopeful that you find value here.
Of course, Thanksgiving isn’t the only time we should be thankful and express our gratitude. It is a good idea to keep a Gratitude Journal and write down a few things each day that you are grateful for. Just like I wrote about last month, it is important to focus on what you want, rather than what you do not want.
Keeping a Gratitude Journal will help you focus on the good “stuff”. If you know that at the end of the day you want to write down things you are grateful, you will be looking for these things throughout your day. And, surprise, surprise you will see many more things you are grateful for. Funny how that works.
Yes, some days may be more challenging than others, but there is always something to be grateful for – even it is just that you are still breathing!!!
And you may find yourself writing the same things day after day and that is ok. But I would challenge you to look for and find new things, too.
What are you thankful for today?
