With the holiday season now in full swing, the concept of gratitude comes front and center. Dina Lynch Eisenberg of www.thismarriagething.com started us off by encouraging us to say “thank you” three times a day to our significant other. It’s funny how being attentive to something nice that a spouse does actually opens you up to noticing other’s around you too. And expressing your appreciation to a partner sets the tone for expressing gratitude to the world around you.

With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, begin to note what you are thankful for and let that gratitude well up and spill over to your family, friends, community, country and the world at large. Then express your gratitude – by saying thanks, by doing something nice in return, by practicing a random act of kindness, by volunteering to help those who are needy, by acting as a citizen of the world. The opportunities are endless.

So, I’ll begin by thanking you for being a part of our readership – it means a lot to us knowing that you are there!

Now pass it forward…
