Gratitude Goes On
November is just beginning and a grateful heart never has to end! I loved spending the last month focusing on and reading everyone’s gratitude posts. From the little things to the big things, and the many things in between, there’s an abundance of things for us to be grateful for each and every day, no matter how simple.
I hope as we move into the final month of this year, we don’t stop counting our blessings just because Thanksgiving has passed. Waking up with, living with, and sustaining a grateful heart can be challenging but is achievable by all and oh so worth it! When I focus on all I have and not what’s lacking, especially this year, it brings calm and joy to my day and my life overall.
A heart that’s full with gratitude overflows, creating an abundance mindset leading to practicing how to live from a place of generosity. For me, the first step is always gratitude which is quickly followed by generosity. It’s a place where I focus on all that I have which leads me to wanting to share with others.
Through COVID and spending more time at home I’ve found myself slowing down and noticing the smaller, beautiful moments I have to be grateful for. I love my early morning walks as the sun rises and my late evening walks under the moonlight. As I walk, I think about how I can share the calm and joy I feel. I often ask myself, “What can I give from my heart that’s so full?” Through that question, I ‘m able to determine what I can share and teach with others in my life that day and how I’ll serve them.
During this holiday season, I encourage you to choose someone to show your gratitude for through service to them or a donation to an organization in honor of them. There are so many people in our lives who are in need at this time. I believe showing them your gratitude will help fill their hearts, too!
