The Gratitude Attitude

“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.”

— William Shakespeare

Giving thanks isn’t just something nice to do.

Recognition isn’t scarce.

Thank you isn’t meaningless.

Gratefulness isn’t trite.

Appreciation isn’t an annual event.

Thanksgiving isn’t just the name of a holiday.

As we approach Thanksgiving, we can look at the holiday as an inconvenience, a lot of work, a big chore, and an obstacle to Black Friday. Or, we can use it is a spring board to living our lives in a fuller, richer way. Everyday.

Gratitude isn’t a platitude. Gratitude is an attitude.


Yesterday’s gift of time … With thanks to the bell ringer, put in $2 to one of the Salvation Army’s red kettles.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
