Gratitude is something that we are taught at a young age or have to learn as an adult. It plays so many important roles in our development. Gratitude is important to one’s psyche as well as having relationships with others. Over the last several years gratitude has been brought to attention by the media and mind-body-spirit experts. Some people have started gratitude journals while others may simply acknowledge someone with a simple thank you. In whatever way you choose to be grateful on this Thanksgiving, hold it as your own.
Last year I decided on New Year’s that I would write 5 things I was grateful for in a journal and reflect on it ever New Year’s Eve. I haven’t been very religious about it, but I keep trying to make it a habit. Since it is Thanksgiving week I thought I would share with you 5 things I am grateful for this week.

How do you tell others you are grateful? How do you feed your soul with gratitude? I dare you to stand if front of the mirror and tell yourself that you are grateful for being alive today and that you love yourself!
