Time For Gratitude


When I was brainstorming fall ideas to share here on the blog, gratitude, of course, immediately came to mind. After all, this is the season of gratitude.  It seems this word is everywhere, on pillows, in art, and in so many online advertisements.

I had to ask myself, what is gratefulness? Is it Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family?

Certainly, that is what we think of most and logically during this fall season, as many of us will be gathering around a Thanksgiving table to share a meal and each other’s company.

Personally, the person I am most grateful for is my husband, Gary.

He never lets a day go by that he does not hug me and tell me how much he loves me.  He has been there with me throughout the good times, the financially low times, and he has also been my business partner- always advising me and offering me support and when it came to my blog, my business, my need to express my creativity on a daily basis, the best supportive and encouraging partner in business and in marriage.  My happiness and business would not be what is today, without him.

However, this Thanksgiving season, I wanted to challenge my own mindset and really examine what I am grateful for in my everyday life?  I want to truly focus on connecting to the people already in my life that have supported me on this crazy self-employment journey.  Those friends and family that I value and that support me.  It is time for me to give back to them.

I challenge you to do the same. Each of us is a conduit of love and each time we connect we have the ability to transform and shape one another, even through the smallest acts of love – such as simply listening to a friend, instead of focusing on what to say next.  Calm your mind and really listen.

We don’t need to fire off fireworks, bend over backwards for a loved one, or give a physical gift to those we want to express gratitude. The smallest act, such as listening, and truly being present for others can be the simplest and the hardest thing to do.  Why is it hard?  We have so many distractions in our busy modern tech times.  The cell phone has replaced our voice and our live contact with others.

Simple acts of love are like when you skip a stone on water – we can see the ripples that extend all the way across a big body of water, when we dedicate ourselves to one moment and to one person, that act multiplies itself in the lives of those people around us.

Think of all the fall leaves that have been around you this fall season. They are everywhere – in abundance  and in full color on the trees, on the front yards of homes, in raked piles, or even blowing in the wind.  But did you really see them?

Those who live their lives filled with gratefulness see more fall leaves, because they are looking for them.  They see what is right in front of them, while many of us blear them out as part of the background.  They see love and friendship in the closest people around them for the same reason they see many more fall leaves – they are looking for  them and for those momentary connections.

So this Thanksgiving season, think of gratitude as a moment in time, but also as an expression of time that magnifies beyond just yourself.  Express gratitude by giving your full attention as a simple gift, a ripple that grows and extends to others and live in that present moment.
