I Dare You To Be Thankful Every Day — Here’s Why

Even though I’m not from the U.S., Thanksgiving is an American tradition I really admire. I think it’s so important to be grateful regardless of what’s going on in our lives.

Gratefulness helps keep a positive outlook and is especially good for the rest if done as an act, not just a thought or reflection. I think it’s important to lift people up whenever we can, and giving thanks or giving back in some way is such a simple but powerful way to do this.

If we acted thankfully every day — the world could change

What would happen if we all made a conscious choice to be and act gratefully every day, not just on a holiday? If we chose to do our work with gratitude in our hearts? If we were thankful to our bosses, employers and customers every day, for giving us a way to make a living, and served them thankfully every day? If we were thankful for all the people that have helped us come so far in life, and gave a little back once in a while? I believe the world would be a much better place.


I’m thankful for you, my reader. Everyone is competing for our attention these days, so really I appreciate you taking the time to read my words.

I’m thankful for my coaching business I started a few months ago. It has allowed me to meet people from different countries and all walks of life, and seeing their progress on their goals really makes my day every time. It has given me a much greater sense of purpose and satisfaction than probably any other job I’ve ever done before. I’m thankful for all my clients and all the incredible work they’re doing out there. I’m humbled and honored to be able to help you as a coach.

I’m thankful for being alive, for this very moment as I type this words. I believe we shouldn’t take that for granted, with all the violence going on in the world currently. If you can read this and are safe, I think you’re blessed. As long as your heart is beating, you have the chance to make a change both for yourself and the people you love.

I’m thankful for the journey I’ve been on through life, with all the good and all the bad. For all the moments, people and places I have in my memory. And I’m especially thankful for God’s grace that has carried me through it all.

Happy Thanksgiving!
