Gratitude is an Attitude - Be Thankful Today
I recently attended the Summit of Greatness with Lewis Howes and he asked us each to declare one word of intention for the summit.
My word was grateful. I am grateful for so many things, probably too many things to write here.
In January, I started to write down one thing each day that I am grateful for. I now have a jar full of notes to myself. Mostly I am grateful for are friends and family, but I am also grateful for any experience and opportunity that makes it way to me. I am so fortunate to live in an amazing country, a great city and am able to meet so many interesting characters that make life such a joyful journey.
In March, I designed a new tank top Gratitude is so Gangster. It is a good thing to be thankful and it is a great thing to realize what you are thankful for the most.
In April, at the Yoga Conference we had a Gratitude Wall. Every person that visited the booth was asked to write down one thing they were thankful for. For some it was an easy task, for others they had to give it more thought. The number one answer - most people were thankful for their family and friends.
In September, at Fall Fit we repeated the Gratitude Wall. The women at this event love to participate and share, not to mention some had been into the wine but again the number one answer was people were thankful for their family and friends.
So, you see, it is not our devices or social media that people are most thankful for, it is the people we share experiences with that make the best memories and fill our hearts with happiness.
Next time you have a chance to spend time with your friends or family, put your device away, forget about posting and just enjoy the moment. I promise you will be grateful that you were fully present, and your heart will feel full.
What are you grateful for?
