Start with Gratitude

Rallying around a season of #giving like the holidays is a wonderful thing.

It brings us all together to raise awareness and inspire #action. And if you know me, you know I love action.

But what about the rest of the year? How can we create this kind of thrust and positivity every day?

I think it starts with gratitude.

Gratitude spawns the desire in all of us to #giveback or #payitforward. When we start our day recognizing those people, experiences, sensations, or states of being for which we are grateful, it creates an attitude that motivates us to do more, to help, to grow.

And when we approach everything we do from the perspective of altruism, it simply creates more good and greater opportunities for all of us.

What are you grateful for today and how can you transform those feelings into something bigger?
