Feeling all warm and fuzzy from your Thanksgiving celebration? Changing your decorations from turkeys to jingle bells? Take a moment to soak in your family and friend time today, and do not let your grateful heart end here. Gratitude is an all year/lifetime practice. Be grateful for how expressing gratitude made you feel during our time of Thanksgiving, and set an intention to make it last throughout the year.
How can you do this?
Set mini reminders on your computer or phone for days throughout the year to take a step back and be grateful. Buy a shirt with the words ‘gratitude’ or ‘grateful’ on them as a reminder (www.spiritualgangster.com has a few). Make a semi-advent calendar to give yourself challenges throughout the year. Whatever you need to do to bring gratitude into your week/month/year more often than Thanksgiving will only improve your quality of life.
Be grateful for gratitude, and let it continue throughout your year!
