Spreading gratitude

The holidays are a time to reflect and celebrate the gifts we have with the people that care for us. Perhaps the most accurate of holidays, sharing thanks and gratitude can be a powerful factor in wellbeing. Just like focusing on your strengths, cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long-term satisfaction with life and kinder behavior toward others.1

Seth Godin developed a new way to celebrate, with a focus on spreading gratitude through shared connection: The Thanksgiving Reader.

In his post, he suggests that “A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things:

The people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and…
The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing to. The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create.”

We couldn’t agree more, and in that spirit wish to share with you these passages from the Reader. Take care, be well, and spread your gratitude!

We are never as alive as when we are together.
Speaking together, as one, amplifies our spirit.
Generosity and thanks bind our community together.

May you experience happiness. May you bring light to someone else’s life.
May you abide in joy. And may you allow yourself to feel gratitude, and
to multiply that feeling by sharing it with those around you.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to
    create your theme? Superb work!

    I absolutely love your site.. Pleasant colors & theme.

    Did you develop this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my very
    own website and want to find out where you got this from
    or just what the theme is named. Kudos!

    been super long) and so i guess I’ll just sum it up the things i
    submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still a novice to
    everything. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
