“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” — Denis Waitley
Holidays filled with the generous types, buying gadgets and gizmos with credit card swipes; Then we give and receive and eat meals fit for kings, swap a kiss for the new year and all that it brings. Though bliss fills the season, let’s not soon forget that our happiness stems not from things that we get; For the dust has long settled on last year’s new stuff, and our gratitude turns what we have to enough!
Regardless of generation, we are a forgetful people. It may seem counter-intuitive to dwell on the past, but to visit it often is a requirement of gratitude. In a time when forward-thinking is the norm, it can be difficult to see past the nose on our face into the world around us. Reflective thinking is the key to a life of grace and gratefulness. And on what better occasion than the holiday season to step away from the hustle and bustle and reflect on what we already have to be thankful for. Because we forget, gratitude must continually be inspired, uncovered and paid forward!
