Thursday Thoughts: Every Day Should Be Gratiday

Yes, of course I made the word up, because I believe that every day should be gratiday!

The thought first popped into my head about four years ago as I read Curt Mercadante’s post on the topic.

But I have continued to believe that we really need to focus on being grateful for what we have more than on just one day a year (Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November in the U.S.). And I’m sure each reader’s culture or country has at least one holiday that focuses on gratitude, so I hope you can see where I’m going with this.

Why just one day a year? Even if there are a few more … why so few? What happens to the others? Are they all useless, worthless, not worthy of consideration in our lives?

Do we just endure those days until someone or something shakes us awake with constant reminders to be grateful for what we have … and to not focus so much on what we might not have?

So, I’m proposing that at least one day a week be a day of reflection, of thinking back to the preceding week and realizing all that we have to be grateful for.

✔ See it.

✔ Feel it.

✔ Embrace it.

There’s no lack of what I can be grateful for — how about you?

What’s going on in your life that you’re grateful for? How do you keep that focus?

  1. Susan, The one minute read is worth days’ or more.

    Especially during the short days of winter. The dark days before Christmas as the Dutch say.

    Personally I am grateful still be healthy and able to walk as much as I wish.

    Every day it is best to identify something, however small that is positive and use it as a stepping stone to positivity.
