By tradition, you are probably reading this while at grandma’s house, that one weird aunt you don’t really know, or are traveling to celebrate Thanksgiving for the weekend. You took work off, drove hours back home from school, or have been planning this week for quite some time with precision and excitement. Whichever the case, by default, most of us use the holiday as a reason to come together as families. You post Facebook and Instagram photos expressing your gratitude for them during the holiday. If you don’t do this, I know I do.
You may say these things, hell, I say attractive things. But do you really mean them? Are you actually grateful or are you just saying it?
Gratitude: the state of being grateful.
The state of being grateful.
You nailed it Webster. Not say. Not tell. Not even act.
It’s a being state. It’s a feeling. It’s a place of silence. It’s a place of love. It’s not something you can just say and it magically exists. Our Instagram pics can’t bring us this genuine feeling. Holiday drunkenness and overeating can’t bring this feeling.
You just are it. That’s, it. Gratitude.
How does one go about embodying such a feeling?
Well, that’s up for you to discover on your journey of self-awareness.
You are a being of gratitude. You are powerful. You are unstoppable.
Happy Thanksgiving, love ya’ll.
P.S… Post the damn photo… I’m definitely going to ;) <3
