Thankfulness is one of those things we talk about a lot but don’t really do much with. But let’s be real, actually practicing thankfulness is hard. We’ve all been trained to say “thank you,” when strangers hold open doors for us and sending thank-you notes to friends and family, but how to we take our gratitude beyond that?
For Americans, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and so I thought this would be an appropriate time to share these thoughts. I know many of you are reading this from around the world, and so this isn’t just about the holiday of Thanksgiving. Gratitude is a universal concept, after all, and I think everyone can benefit from expressing it a little more often.
