happy-thanksgivingTo all my friends across the pond, Happy Thanksgiving Day.

Having an attitude of gratitude and giving thanks has been one of my regular practices for many years.

My friend Sam Russell came up with the concept Thank You Thursday to boost her social media interaction and the idea kind of stuck and became a habit. I shared it with Global Winning Women and we would would share our appreciations each week on, yep, you guessed it, Thursdays.

More recently another friend Karen created a 21 Days of Gratitude challenge, again on social media where we posted whatever we were grateful for that day.

Why does giving thanks matter? Because what we appreciate appreciates.

Practising gratitude has enabled me to see the gift in every situation.

Whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving today or not, there is always something to be grateful for.
