Now that November is upon us, Thanksgiving is fast approaching, so it’s the perfect time to give thanks. Most of us get caught up with the planning details of the holidays, but at the end of the day each have their special meaning and traditions. Thanksgiving is the day for giving thanks to people, and appreciate the things we have in our life. The Glitter Guide has a great and inspiring list of things we should be grateful for and do to show it during this month of November. So I decided to join their gratitude movement, making sure I show my gratitude every day. Join their movement by tagging your acts with #GGgratitude!
I already started doing small tasks, like saying I love you more, and baking an apple pie for the physical therapists thanking them for their services and helping me recover from knee surgery these last three months. Each morning and night before I go to bed I think of one thing that happened during day that I am grateful for. It makes me appreciate my life, and keeps my heart content. I first felt inspired by this quote from Brooke of World of Wanderlust a few weeks ago, and although it isn’t directly about gratitude, it is about seeing love in all the areas of your life, not just from a significant other, but family, acquaintances, and even from doing the things you’re passionate and love. Something simple like calling your grandmother to say hello and you miss her, to reading a book and listening to your favorite music.
