J Ruth Kelly's insight:


What do you cling to for a renewal of thankfulness? How does gratitude blossom within you? Is it like the sweet flow of water over a blessed baby's head?


Shavawn M. Berry reflects beautifully on the Thanksgiving season along side the often disjointed reality of "the state of things." From the recent Phillipines' devastation to myriad disasters of the past year, we feel what Berry call's the "punch in the gut." Those hard hits remind us of what matters the most:


  • Loved ones
  • Baby pics
  • Beloved pets


She asks a powerful question: "What's left when nothing's left?" And as dark as that may sound, the light dawns right as we turn to the things that matter.


Family, love-flow, momentos heralding the wonder of human being. Remember, we're always able to shine a light of Thanksgiving, no matter the time of year.

Thankful Much?

Thankful Much? | Unplug | Scoop.it
Suddenly everywhere we look we are reminded to be grateful, but how exactly can we express our gratitude?
J Ruth Kelly's insight:

We can make a study and ritual of gratitude, if we so desire. And, for me, that's the point, the only point. I've not found choosing happiness works to make me happy and neither have I found thankfulness to make me happy. Did the chicken come first? Or the egg? 

 

I've found happiness comes and goes and sometimes gratitude comes from happiness, sometimes vice versa. Sometimes happiness just is and it's the same way with thankfulness. The point here? There's value in the art of cultivating a mindset as long as you've decided why it matters to you and what you want to create for yourself. While this article doesn't go into that fact, it does pack up quite a feast of gratitude opportunities. You'll be glad, grateful, thankful for the ideas and the thoughts on Thankfulness especially this time of year.
