As November came, so did the myriad of workshops, workbooks, and blog posts about Gratitude.
Let’s look at the definition of Gratitude:
- the quality of being thankful
- readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness
I really like this definition…..it speaks about the QUALITY of being thankful. I’ve never looked at it that way but really…..how can we be thankful or grateful if there isn’t a quality connected to those words? I think if there’s no quality, then there’s really no thankfulness or gratefulness.
I ran across this blog the other day – “She Works His Way”. She had a free downloadable workbook (I’m sure it’s still up if you’d like to take a look) so I thought it would be a wonderful way to begin the Holiday Season….by being grateful and sharing my Gratitude for the Simple Things in Life, being thankful for all I have. There’s alot of things I’d LIKE to have and don’t, but I AM TRULY grateful for….well….the Simple Things in Life.
I’m filling in the workbook each day but creating a graphic to share here on my blog and other places too. You really never know when your words or feelings might touch someone else……or even bring to mind something they might be grateful for as well but really haven’t thought about it.
I’ve filled in the workbook for November 1-3. I wasn’t planning on even creating a blog post about it but THEN I ran across a most amazing video (embedded below) that I KNEW I wanted to share. It touched my core.
Here are my first 3 days of the simple things in life that I’m grateful for.
And now, I’d love for you to see this video, it’s absolutely amazing. It will make you understand the QUALITY of being thankful.
Enjoy the video and until next time,
Hugs and Have A Creative Day!
