This week is Thanksgiving. I’m so glad I came across this article on LinkedIn by Forbes. Normally this week I would be going through the motions of starting the holiday season and looking forward to relaxing a bit, but reading this article has made me look into the inquiry of being grateful. It has been an interuption to my routine. Sometimes we need interruptions like that to actually make a stop and take a moment to acknowledge and reflect. Sometimes it seems like we even go through the motions of being grateful and not let it really sink in.
Here’s a great clip from the article that really got to me:
“In fact, it is precisely under crisis conditions when we have the most to gain by a grateful perspective on life. In the face of demoralization, gratitude has the power to energize. In the face of brokenness, gratitude has the power to heal. In the face of despair, gratitude has the power to bring hope.”
I know that you may have read something like this before, but gratitude really does create the space for abundance. It’s for real. Yes think it’s the sense of feeling humbled and being in wonder of life.
