Happy Giving Thanks
 
Why are the words, ‘I’m thankful’ more keenly felt this time of year?
 
Because we pause. Our state of mind when we give thanks matters. Words that are said often, such as thank you, how are you? or I love you can become so automatic that they mindlessly slide off our tongue leaving them empty.
 
Here's why it's important to give thanks from an awakened state.
 
Melony Beattie, author of Codependent No More said,
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
 
So, today and every day, before expressing gratitude, pause, calm your body with a breath, locate the feeling in your heart, and consciously give thanks from a place of ‘happy.’ Your life will forever be transformed.
 
'Happy' giving thanks and love,
