Is there a more important task than cultivating a grateful heart? When we learn to recognize the smallest blessings, we’re able to truly appreciate the people and moments that make our lives special.
November inspires reflection on the multitude of gifts in our lives, and gratitude lists seem to be pop pop popping up on all sorts of social media. These lists are wonderful, but I think it’s important that we remember to actually give thanks for our blessings.
Today I wrote gratitude letters to a few people who consistently make my life more positive. To make the project a little more fun, I put the letters inside confetti poppers. That said, make it pop!
“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” — Elizabeth Gilbert
