Gratitude is more than sentiment

Social media this week has been an explosion of gratitude with the Thanksgiving holiday, and I'm curious what people who have practiced counting their blessings for the whole month have found.

I believe that gratitude is one of the most significant practices we can engage for true life change.

It shifts our focus in such a profound and meaningful way that not only does our interior life change, but our exterior life does too.

I have yet to meet a truly happy person, that doesn't leak gratitude everywhere they go.

It is transformational.

The thing about gratitude is that it isn't a feeling. It is a practice. You start doing it daily, and then it sparks something in you.

If you are unhappy with yourself, start to practice gratitude. It changes everything.
