World Gratitude Day – What Are You Grateful For?

September 21st, 2010

We all have so many things that we should be grateful for every day. Unfortunately, our schedules can get so hectic that most of us don’t have time to stop and think about the moments that make us smile. That’s why we’re grateful for World Gratitude Day.

Origin
In 1965, a group of dignitaries from several nations enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner together in Hawaii. They discussed the concept of setting aside one day each year for people to focus on things that they are grateful for. Every attendee agreed to take this idea back to their home country. From that moment on, September 21 would become an internationally celebrated event.

The founders of World Gratitude Day suggest spending time with family and friends, and meditating on the things that make you happy. Whether these thoughts are shared or kept private doesn’t matter; the point is to focus on the positive side of life and express your gratitude. Are you grateful for the people who share your world? Tell them.
