Gratitude is one of the most important things to practice. Here's a video from Brene Brown:
"It's not joy that makes us grateful. It's gratitude that makes us joyful." Brene Brown is not speaking to the generic "attitude of gratitude" that we hear about. She is speaking of an actual gratitude practice. Like the ritual from Monday or a gratitude journal. I find gratefulness.org to be wonderful. Every day I get an email with a beautiful gratitude quote. They have a post with 30 ideas for practicing gratitude.
Sociologists say it. Neuroscientists say it. It must be good for us!
Today, I am grateful for all of the readers who travel this journey with me. I have lit a virtual candle for all of you. You can see your candle here: http://www.gratefulness.org/candle/660976-2/
What practices of gratitude resonate with you? What are you grateful for this day?
