Gratitude

thankfulThanksgiving Reflection, 2015

Faith in a god is not a requisite to experiencing the benefits of gratitude in one’s life.  While some define gratitude as being directed to a supernatural being, those without religion are simply…grateful.  Gratitude is a personal value, virtue, and a way of life that strengthens us as a community and as individuals, and increases the positive impact we have on the world around us – regardless of our faith or non-faith perspective.  Like kindness, gratitude benefits all humans.live-gratitude

This Thanksgiving, don’t just “say grace”.  Integrate gratitude into all of your interactions with others (yes, even on Black Friday).  Make a commitment to improving your gratitude techniques and be intentional about habituating gratitude in your daily life.

And, yes, there’s an “app” for that: Gratitude Journal App

Whatever your Thanksgiving traditions – a quiet evening with pizza delivery, a raucous dinner with family and friends, retreating to a peaceful sanctuary – BE grateful for the good in the world, and BE part of it.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
