imageThankfulness is a decision.

It is borne of perspective that transcends personal experience, and resists seeing life through a built-in-ever-present corrective lens.

Thankfulness has no agenda. It is poured out in response to an awareness of what constitutes true richness.

It is not a day. Or a season. It cannot be measured, and it does not keep score.

It is a choice — to reject a frame of reference shaped by fear…to resist the tendency to focus on all so obviously askew around us.

Thankfulness makes our hearts bigger and more aware. It fine-tunes vision, inspiring creativity and innovation.

This is why our world is a little better when we pause for a moment, hour or day of thanksgiving.

What might be the result of a simple decision to move into each day with a thankful perspective?
