November 2018 5 From the Publisher A


utumn’s glorious colors announce my favorite time of the year. As I walk each morning, I inhale the crisp air and revel in anticipation of Tanksgiving — a time of gratitude and good food! Te holiday season


is a reminder that each day we have the opportunity to give thanks, to show our gratitude and to feel grateful for all the good we have, are and can be. Kristi Nelson explores this theme further in “Why Gratefulness Brings


Happiness” on page 35. She states that gratefulness is a proactive orientation to life that originates in our hearts and minds. We wake with a sense of thankful aware- ness for the giſt of another day. Gratitude is more of a response to something going well, and thanksgiving bubbles up when we’re so filled with a sense of gratefulness that it overflows into finding ways to express our thanks with both our voice and our actions. Tankfulness precedes gratitude, and reminds us to be mindful and appre-


ciative of our surroundings. Gratitude is our awestruck acknowledgement of the interconnected webs we weave. When we feel grateful for something, we can express it without words or actions because gratitude comes from the heart. It is our inward feeling of joy and contentment. Tanksgiving is an outward display of gratitude and is an outward display of joy shown in loving action. Gratitude is when we dwell on more than just the feeling of thankfulness.


Tankfulness is the first step. We build upon it by redirecting our focus and making gratefulness an integral part of our daily life. Tanksgiving comes from the mind, and is rooted in the present moment. Gratitude comes from the heart, and spans a lifetime. So how do we gain that perspective and keep it with us year round? Te way


to live an enriching and fulfilling life is to live in a state of constant gratefulness — the key is to keep gratitude at the forefront of our lives. Each act of gratefulness is memorable and can live on for a very long time. When we feel grateful toward someone we oſten continue to feel a sense of appreciation for that person even many years later. As Kristi notes in her article, gratefulness creates happiness. I find one


powerful way to bring the sense of gratefulness into my daily life is by writing a gratitude list each morning. I find that when I make my list of those people and things I am grateful for, or want to be grateful for, I can actually feel the emotion. It makes for a wonderful start to my day as I feel my appreciation and express it through my writing. Let this holiday season inspire you to count your blessings. Tink oſten of all


the good in your life. Say “thank you” more than once a day. Tat is the start of gratefulness, which transcends to happiness on a much deeper level. Wishing you all a gratitude holiday season,


Dee Whitaker, Publisher
