"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life."

Listen Now:

For Thanksgiving this year I wanted to highlight what exists at the heart of the holiday - To give thanks to the blessing we have in our life. It’s a time to be grateful for time with loved ones, an abundance of food and comfort, and personal growth as an annual timestamp.

It’s beautiful that we can practice giving thanks for a day so that we can taste what it’d be like if we chose to live with gratitude in every moment of every day. And the reason that’s important is best stated in this quote - "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.”

Ultimately we use gratitude to completely reframe and shift the way we see our lives. There is so much meaning in everything and layers of depth to visit should we want to. Gratitude pushes us to explore those layers so that we can see how rich, how great, how full our lives actually are. It’s a truth that is always hiding in plain sight until we intentionally bring our attention to it.

It’s almost the opposite of the expression “ignorance is bliss”. Sometimes, not knowing about something negative going is the best thing for us because then it doesn’t impact our perception. But often we’re hyper-focused on the negative and ignorant of the good and positive. 

In our pursuit to unlock the fullness of life, we don’t want to just fill it with nonsense so that it’s full. We want to be full with rich experiences, meaningful relationships, and stories of how we’ve grown and overcome obstacles. And when we choose to be grateful, we see how packed our lives are with incredible treasures. 

So as a Thanksgiving gratitude practice, I’d love for you to answer these 3 questions:

1) What are you deeply grateful for in your life that you don’t give enough credit to?

2) How has a specific major setback positively shaped you into who you’ve become?

3) Who has supported you in ways that have been transformative for you, and what can you do to acknowledge them?
