This is the time of year when we are particularly conscious of gifts and blessings. It’s the time when we thank those around us and tell them we appreciate them. Yet, the practice of gratitude is something we can learn to do on a daily basis through out the year and has some great effects on our health, energy level, and the ability to turn around situations and see new possibilities for ourselves.
So, if asked what are you grateful for, what would you say? My list would include snowflakes, Santa Claus, my December birthday and the years I’ve experienced on this earth, my friends and clients and the smiles of strangers. Take a minute now and jot down your list. The list can be short–3 to 5 things you are grateful for. It may make you smile and bring you joy!
