Happy Thanksgiving! You know what that means! Inspirational quote time… But gratitude quotes are not just for Thanksgiving, however… We whole heartedly believe that it’s important to have an attitude of gratitude every day throughout the year, but we have to admit that we do find ourselves thinking about what we’re thankful for more around the holidays.
We hold our loved ones closer, we distance ourselves from the toxic people and negative influences a bit more, and more than anything we appreciate how lucky we are to be here, alive and well, to enjoy every journey life brings our way.
However you’re celebrating, we hope you take some time to give thanks to those who matter most. And since William Arthur Ward said, “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it,” let us say to you — THANK YOU! Thanks for reading the blog, for following along on our journeys near and far, for your kind comments and feedback, and for sharing a little piece of the journey with us. Cheers!
