Sharing Gratitude During The Thanksgiving Season
New York, New York, USA - In the United States, the ultimate day for expressing gratitude and thanks is Thanksgiving Day. Families and individuals around the world will gather to express their thanks and celebrate with family and friends. The day is marked with a larger than usual meal, enjoying company, football, and enjoying a long weekend. Thanksgiving also starts the beginning of the “holiday season” that continues through New Year’s Day. “Black Friday”, the Friday after Thanksgiving is one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
While all this giving thanks, eating, celebrating, and making times for gatherings culminate on Thanksgiving, one individual focuses on giving thanks and gratitude all year round. Paul B. Taubman, II, dubbed as the Gratitude Guru, is the founder of the website, http://www.AllAboutGratitude.com. Its main goal is bringing awareness of the effects of gratitude and why anyone can be grateful regardless of how much they think they have, or don’t have.
“There is always something for which you can be grateful,” says Taubman. “One of my favorite quotes is, ‘Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.’” Uttering a slight chuckle as he recites that quote, he continues, “Seriously – if you look carefully enough at any situation, there is always some goodness to be found. When people focus on gratitude, their entire mindset and disposition changes.”
Taubman mentions that being grateful is a skill that needs to be practiced if one wants to experience it to its fullest. Having a daily reminder is one of the easiest ways to help accomplish this. “Individuals from all over the world have signed up at http://www.AllAboutGratitude.com to receive the free daily Gratitude Burst.” Each day a short message revolving around being grateful is sent out via email; this starts peoples’ day with a short quote and gets them thinking about being grateful.
As Meister Eckhart said, “If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” You can sign up for your own copy of the Gratitude Burst at http://www.AllAboutGratitude.com
