Being Grateful...

Dear Reader, 
Whoever you may be.... I hope you had a wonderful Christmas... or holiday of some kind.
My family and I did, but now it's time to embrace that wonderful time of year when we start thinking of
all the ways to better ourselves... New Years!

I have decided to focus on being grateful this new years.. I have so much, and I frequently lose sight of how blessed I am.
So this year I hope you will indulge me as I use this blog as sort of a gratitude dairy. I plan on posting daily a short note of what I am grateful for, and if not daily as often as possible.. but internet connection is not
always available.... please join me! It's free, not fattening, and totally beneficial!
I'm excited!

The Benefits of Gratitude

Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, for example, a consumer-driven emphasis on what one wants. Gratitude is getting a great deal of attention as a facet of positive psychology: Studies show that we can deliberately cultivate gratitude, and can increase our well-being and happiness by doing so. In addition, gratefulness—and especially expression of it to others—is associated with increased energy, optimism, and empathy.
