Taking a Moment to be Thankful

I am thankful for a lot of things in my life. My family, my friends, my loving kitty Boots, my health, the fact that I live in a country where I can do anything, that I live on a world where Oreos and Doritos and ice cream exist, other delicious food, this little corner of the world where I can try to make a difference, farmers markets, my house, my job, snugly blankets on a weekend morning, my favorite mechanical pencil, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the mountains, National Parks…I could go on and on.

I have heard from a lot of sources that practicing gratitude is a way to increase happiness and makes people more satisfied with their life. In the spirit of Thanksgiving tomorrow, I wanted to share a couple of my favorite quotes about thankfulness and gratitude. Maybe take a few moments and contemplate these quotes and what you are grateful for in your own life. In all the noise of “buy, buy, buy” for the holidays, it’s good to take a beat and remember that we already have so much. I hope you enjoy these quotes and have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow with all your loved ones.
