In the wise words of Roman orator, scholar and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero: “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”
The ancients knew about gratitude. Our parents and parent figures taught us about gratitude — it’s one of the first big life lessons we learn… to be grateful for who and what we have in life. To appreciate the big things, like a job promotion or a roof over our heads, and the small things, like having a good hair day or the sound of the pouring rain. Gratitude means counting your blessings, and better yet, research has shown that an attitude of gratitude can enhance positive moods and emotions, build stronger relationships, decrease stress and improve overall health and wellbeing. While many of us express a lot of gratitude this time of year, especially since November is National Gratitude Month, it’s important to make it a year-round habit. And when you want to give a shout-out to what you’re thankful for, then the I Am Grateful Project Recipe™ Kit is your feel-good answer. Check out this gratitude scrapbook layout from blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu and think of what life wins, people and experiences you would highlight!Continue reading Give Thanks Today and Every Day With This Gratitude Scrapbook Layout

“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” — Aristotle

And after that fresh snow cloaks the landscape, go for an evening walk — your boots make crunching sounds, the air is crisp and the snow is glistening in the moonlight. See? Magic.
