Tomorrow we celebrate thankfulness. I like to think of Thanksgiving not just as a time to celebrate the “things” that we are thankful for, but also a celebration of gratitude itself. Gratitude is more than an emotion. It’s an inner disposition; a kind of awareness of all that is good in life. Gratitude changes the way I see things, situations and people. When I have a deep appreciation for life, I become a more energized and flexible person. I am able to handle difficulty with greater grace and opportunities with greater creativity. Gratitude reshapes the inner terrain of my life so that I can then shape the outer terrain in powerful ways.

So today and tomorrow (and everyday), be thankful for gratitude.
