Thanksgiving Gratitude

Gratitudes are expressions of gratefulness for things outside of yourself: people, place, situation and things that are external.  Always be specific as possible in your gratitudes. Gratitudes are very powerful; they can literally change your perspective of the world.  You see opportunities where there were none before.  You are open to possibilities that, in the past, would have felt impossible. You become more positive. You see people differently.  You begin to notice little things.  Stress dissolves. Your smile returns. Life seems doable.
