Well, guys, believe it or not, Thanksgiving is tomorrow! What?! When on earth did that happen? I don’t know about you, but for us, the past few months have all blended into one and have flown by at the speed of light. And I have to say I’m looking very forward to just relaxing tomorrow. I plan to completely disconnect (ok, maybe not completely) and spend time catching up with my family and squeezing my little nephews tight (with a lot of Chardonnay thrown in there for good measure).
For a while now, gratitude journals have been all the rage. And for good reason. I cannot say I write in a gratitude journal daily because that would be a big ol’ fat lie, but I do write in one from time to time, and I have to say it is, in fact, as powerful as they are made out to be.
It’s one thing to say you’re grateful, but to feel it is entirely different. And when you write it down, it helps to implant it in your mind and to help you to really feel it.
And a grateful heart is one of the keys to a happy and joyful life. When you feel gratitude for who is in your life and what you have, it makes all the difference in the world.
