Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for. ― Epicurus
Gratitude. It can be defined as “the quality of being thankful” or the “readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness” and is often described as a deeper appreciation or value versus just a feeling. Positive Psychology research has even found that there are numerous neurological reasons why gratitude is beneficial for us as humans.
But what does gratitude actually look like? It can be moments taken daily to count and appreciate your blessings from your health to your relationships to your community or it can look like finding appreciation for a deep inner peace you might feel in your life. The emotions and feelings it can evoke and how one actually practices gratitude can look different from person to person.
With the busy holiday season ahead, it might be harder to slow down and take the time to reflect and find that gratitude but that’s where the challenge lies. With a focus on, you guessed it, gratitude this month, you can expect articles exploring the true power of gratitude and finding gratitude as you age gracefully to name a few.
Join us this month as we find new ways to seek and create that deep appreciation for what we have in this life. We invite you to take on this challenge and take a moment, each and every day, to find gratitude.
