This week seems a perfect time to think about how closely tied joy is to gratitude.
As we Americans gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, it’s a wonderful opportunity to reflect on all the things that fill our hearts with gratitude. And that gratitude can fill us with joy.
And though I seem to continue repeating the lesson, I have learned that the more gratitude I have, the more thankful I am for all the blessings in my life, the more joy I feel. It’s like gratitude and thankfulness fill up our inner well of joy.
As you go forward this week, may joy well up inside you and overflow onto others.
