Make Every Day a BIG Day

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to live on this beautiful and astonishing planet Earth. In the morning, I wake up with a sense of gratitude." Earl Nightingale

Make today a BIG (a Begin In Gratitude) Day!

If you are reading this, you have been blessed. You have things to be thankful for.

I have been blessed.

I have a wonderful family. My memories include five generations of people who have had a positive impact on my life – from my grandparents to my grandchildren. I have health. I have opportunities – to live, to love, to learn, to laugh. I live on this wonderful planet Earth – in a land of opportunity and freedom – in the beautiful state of Colorado. I have amazing friends and clients.

Benedictine Monk (and Gratitude expert) David Steindl-Rast declares, “The root of joy is gratefulness...It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.”

Look closely and you will find that people are happy because they are grateful. The opposite of gratefulness is just taking everything for granted.

You can watch an amazing and beautiful 5-minute video on Gratitude here: Gratitude - David Steindl-Rast - YouTube

I suggest you watch this and then Begin In Gratitude every day - with three minutes of experiencing gratitude for your life. I would love to hear from you. I invite you to send me your thoughts by clicking here or sending an email to steve@purposefulfinancialplanning.com .
