In the United States, we are in the midst of avoiding the crush of commerce for just a few moments of giving thanks.
Perhaps we gloss too quickly over this opportunity on our sprint to the Holidays. We miss the opportunity that gratitude brings in transforming our lives.
I remember the blessing before our Thanksgiving meal, where we were in a circle and said a word about something for which we were thankful. I often felt put-on-the-spot, saying something quickly to move onto the meal.
Partly, that for which I was most thankful was too private. Partly, I missed how important gratitude could be. Now I know.
Gratitude can create powerful shifts in our lives. In can transform our lives, if we tend to it.
In this podcast, I discuss how you can bring a thankful attitude into your life, tell you about some research that demonstrates why you should do this, and even tell you a story about how someone was transformed in the process of being grateful.
Please listen and let me know what you think!
