Thankfulness is an action

I want to continue with the theme of being thankful in this month of November.  For thankfulness to work it must be demonstrated.  Gratefulness is an attitude but thankfulness is an action.  The easiest way to demonstrate thankfulness is by speaking it.  Being grateful is a fantastic first step, but I want to encourage you to see it all the way through and let your mouth speak out what your heart is feeling. 

So what are some thankfulness stoppers? 

1.     Pride:

Don’t let your pride get in the way of telling someone how much he or she means to you. 

2.     Laziness: 

It takes energy and effort to let people know how thankful you are.  

3.     Attitude: 

If you find that you have nothing to be thankful for in life, it’s probably because your bad attitude is hindering you from seeing it. 

I want to encourage you to let those around you know how thankful you are.  Let your coworker know how thankful you are for them.  Let your family members know how thankful you are.  Let the server at the restaurant know how thankful you are with your words… and a good tip!
