Happy Holidays, y’all!
I’m here to talk about gratitude after Thanksgiving because last year, I noticed a distinct decline in expressions of gratitude.
While it’s totally understandable that our focus on being grateful would evaporate amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it got me thinking maybe it didn’t have to be this way.
What if Thanksgiving was merely the start of a whole Season of Gratitude?
So last year that’s how I conducted the entire holiday season from Thanksgiving until New Years, focusing on what I was grateful for in my life.
It was pretty cool. I was calmer, everything was easier and despite the busy-busy, I had a ton of fun.
Given it takes 21 days to create a new habit, it set up the New Year with a solid foundation of a gratitude practice.
If this resonates with you, I invite you to adopt a Season of Gratitude – or adapt it – for yourself and see what happens and how you feel.
