Thankfulness is a decision — one that, when made, changes everyone touched by the decision.
It is borne of a perspective that transcends experience, and resists seeing life through a lens.
Thankfulness has no agenda. It is comfortable in any room…at ease in any position or station…predisposed to give, with no expectation.
Thankfully, it is not confined to a day. Or a season. It cannot be measured, and it does not keep score.
It is a gift. And to give thanks is a choice.
A thankful perspective is inclined to reject views rooted in fear.
Thankfulness makes our hearts bigger. It opens our eyes wider and fine-tunes the way everything is seen.
It inspires the highest order of creativity and innovation.
People driven by a thankful spirit are inconspicuous. They speak softly; yet, what they say resonates. They change every room they enter.
We are all a little better when we are consciously thankful. This is why our world is a happier place when we pause for a moment, hour or day of thanksgiving.
