I have been mulling around on this post on gratitude for over a week.
I keep looking for something unique to say, a hook that will catch your attention.
On the surface, gratitude is something we all know. We’ve felt it. We’ve been told we should feel it more. We feel guilty that we don’t feel it more often. This complexity we layer on top of gratitude confuses us, or more accurately, it confuses me.
I know that’s true because it feels like another reason it has taken so long to write this post. In my researching and soul-searching around happiness, I find gratitude is something I don’t focus on enough on and express enough to those around me.
At the beginning of September, I made a personal vow around gratitude. I am actively working on being more grateful in my daily life. I plan to work with it through Thanksgiving.
Over the next few posts, I’ll share more of what I have learned about gratitude and the forms I am using to practice it.
