30 Days of Thanks

It’s no secret that I’m a big ‘ole fan of gratitude.  I think it can make a major difference in relationships and in your own life.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I am committing to a month of thanksgiving…a month of active gratitude…a month of saying “thank you” every single day.

There have been times in my life when gratitude has been easy (living in Paris for 5 weeks, it was pretty easy to feel very blessed).  Currently in my life things are a bit harder and I have a feeling that a daily gratitude practice might be even more powerful now.  Just because you are suffering or struggling, doesn’t mean you should give up gratitude.  It also doesn’t mean you can’t feel your suffering and also feel grateful.  You can feel hardship and be thankful.  Both things can be true.

This is not a new concept.  Plenty of other people have declared November a month of gratitude and I think it’s beautiful.  I would love it if you would join me.  Every day I will post my gratitude on facebook or twitter.  I would also love to know what you are grateful for.  I think there is power in community and that my thanks might inspire your thanks and that thanks might inspire someone else and then that thanks might come back and inspire me.  So wherever you are now, take a moment and give a little thanks.

Today I am grateful for sunshine, a midday dance party in the kitchen, a new washing machine and an amazing tribe of women.

For what are you most grateful, today?

    […] 30 Days of Thanks was such a treat for me! Because of that, I wanted to come up with something I could do in December to keep me present and keep the gratitude going.  I’ve decided to focus on giving in December.  31 Days of Giving is one way for me to focus on what I have and also on feeling good.  This month my intention is to give without expectations.  Giving doesn’t have to be big or expensive.  I will update you about my month of giving about once a week.  I know that like gratitude, this will impact my month positively.  I would love it if you would join me this month.
