I know you're busy this week as you prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, so I'll keep this brief.
If your practice of gratitude is limited to one day in November, you're missing out. Gratitude is one of the most powerful tools for feeling more joy and less stress. Some of the most influential people throughout history agree.
Consider making it a daily ritual to count your blessings and express thanks to others.
I hope you'll take a moment today to reflect on some of my favorite inspirational
quotes on gratitude. May this season bring you many reasons to be thankful.
