Gratitude…Again

By CreativeWings, 11 December, 2011, No Comment

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
- William Arthur Ward

I know I have written about gratitude many times before, but when I sit down to write, that’s what is on my mind. I can’t help it, I know that I have more to be grateful for than I could ever put into words.

Today, I am again eternally grateful for all of the people in my life that have loved me, supported me, and have made it possible for me to become the person that I am.

It’s one of the driving forces behind my desire to coach – I get the opportunity to help others to live the life that they have dreamed for themselves. For this too, I am grateful.

So what triggered this new round of gratitude?

Over the weekend, I got a chance to spend time with a group of friends at a reunion. As I was catching up with the ones I don’t see often, and chatting with the ones I do, I had one of those moments where you realize where you are, how wonderful the people surrounding you are, and poof – instant overwhelming gratitude.

So, as the Holiday season continues, and we move forward towards the end of this year, I hope that you find yourself surrounded by the people that love and support you.
Take a moment while you are with them to appreciate what they mean to you, and how wonderful they are.

Gratitude.
It’s an amazing thing.

Happy, Happy Holidays.
