This week, we are talking about the sometimes complicated topic of being grateful. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, you know that while we’re all enjoying a giant holiday meal with whatever your family’s favorite dishes may be, the underlying meaning of the holiday is right in the name – giving thanks.
We’re talking about why some of us in the modern world can have a complicated relationship with gratitude, and some ways to tap into the positive parts of that emotion while sidestepping some of the noise that society has introduced.
We talk about:
- Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes
- Why gratitude is good for you
- Why gratitude can be complicated (especially for women)
- Steer clear of ‘gratitude for what you have’
- Focus on gratitude for who you have
- Focus on gratitude for what you have accomplished
- Favorite Thanksgiving desserts
