Thanksgiving in the United States is just days away, and while gratitude is a hot topic and practice year round, it gets special attention this week.
Sometimes there’s a lot of confusion around the practice of gratitude.
High-achievers and go-getters get stymied between being grateful for their blessings and wanting more.
1. You can be grateful for all the good blessings in your life and still want to reach a new goal or fulfill a new desire. It doesn’t make you ungrateful.
2. Wanting to live a life of even greater pleasure and purpose doesn’t compete with your ability to notice and name your current blessings.
Recognizing your longing to maximize your human journey will simply free you up to both appreciate your present existence and honor your desire to continue to create a life of even greater joy and meaning.
