You shouldn’t have to wait for December for this topic. Gratitude. Has someone done something so simple for you that you’ve stopped for a moment and thought I should thank them and you haven’t because it feels weird? It shouldn’t. A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude. I’m the worst offender at times because I felt like people were blowing smoke up my you know what. But I’m learning that gratitude can go a long way for me and for others.

It’s easy to wait until the end of the year when your heads maybe more clear for sharing gratitude towards your family, friends, people you work with or the teller at the store you were shopping at. So try it once a week and then twice and then it’ll become more of a habit but don’t wait until December to get in the mood. So gratitude to the people I’m mentioning. Your stories and videos have had an impact on me and I’m happy to share that.
