It is November, the month that brings us NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, Movember, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday, American Thanksgiving and lots and lots of gratitude. Writer’s Quote Wednesday will focus on gratitude this month.
I love Piglet and all of the other characters Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin encountered in the Hundred Acre Wood. Milne’s quote reminds us that the funny thing about gratitude is that like love it is limitless and our hearts know no bounds. The more gratitude we feel and express the more we experience.
At different points in my life I have practiced living in a state of gratitude in various ways. One of the ways over the years has been to keep a gratitude journal.
What are some ways you’ve found to be grateful and express your gratitude?
