On this Thanksgiving day of 2016 I’m wishing you abundance and peace. Take a moment to reflect on what you are grateful for in this life. There is so much.
As I’ve noted before, I have a daily gratitude practice that is an important part of my morning routine.
Today — I’ll take the time to expand on this brief practice. Reflecting more deeply on what it means to be grateful. Pausing a bit longer on each of the ideas that arise.
Here is a great piece talking about the value of practicing gratitude — and what research has shown us on its effects.
On this day I’m grateful for:
The love of my partner in life, Jolene.
The love of my three amazing children.
The health of my family.
Those who have believed in and supported me.
I’ve led a life full of joy, opportunity, and good fortune. I’m thankful for all that has been provided to me from my parents. I’m thankful to those who helped shape me into the man I am today.
Take the time to show gratitude today. And then…
When you awake tomorrow, think back on Thanksgiving as a day where you reflected on things and gave thanks, and then take the time to express gratitude again. You’ll be better for it.
