Happy World Gratitude Day

September 20th, 2011

What are you grateful for? It’s easy to dwell on the negative things in life. Our days get so hectic that most of us don’t have time to stop and think about all the little moments that make us smile. That’s why we’re celebrating World Gratitude Day.

Origin

In 1965 a group of dignitaries from several nations enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner together in Hawaii. They discussed the concept of creating one day each year to encourage people to focus on things that make them happy. All the attendees agreed to take this idea back to their home countries. From then on, September 21 was recognized as World Gratitude Day.

The founders of this happy holiday suggest spending it with family and friends, and meditating on things that bring you joy. Whether you share these thoughts with others or keep them private doesn’t matter. The point is to concentrate on the positive side of life and express your gratitude.

Our Thoughts

We are optimists who are grateful to have an opportunity to help people find and reconnect with loved ones they haven’t seen in years.

We all know that life can be difficult. We all endure trials and tribulations. But when we’re going through these troubled times, we can lean on the people who care about us. The people we love. They make all the difference in the world, and we are so grateful for them.
