A theme that I keep hearing this year is Gratitude. Defined as the state of being grateful. This Thanksgiving instead of giving all the focus to overfilled plates we challenge you to focus on showing gratitude. For some families there is a tradition to go around the table and say what we are thankful for, but what about showing gratitude for the big and small moments of 2015! For me my big moment was having my son and a small moment was the day the driver in front of me paid for my coffee as I went through the drive thru. I was surprised at this stranger’s kindness and decided to pay it forward by paying for the car behind me.
Try starting a gratitude list. Each day list 3 things that you are grateful for and try to not repeat anything on the list. At first this will seem easy, but after a week it will really challenge you to think outside of spouse, children, family, pets, and job. Here is an example to get you started 🙂
We would love to hear what you are showing gratitude for this year!
