Spend more time with LOVED ones. My husband, kids, family and friends are the most important people in my life. I am thankful that I have them and for all they do for me. The support they give to me and my children never goes un-noticed for this I am grateful.
Focus on the positive, remove and replace, change the order of the toxic wording! I am a negative thinker, by nature I worry constantly much to my husbands annoyance as he is always so positive. I try to think before I react, think about the bigger picture at times my worries get the better of me however by focusing on the positives it helps me be grateful.
Volunteer, grateful people know there no other way to give thanks than to pay it back! I find giving to other satisfying. I have been a kind generous thoughtful person all of my life. I give to my family, friends, others in the community and to my franchisees. Giving not to receive but because it makes me thankful that. There have been times when people have been most un-appreciative of my giving it could have easily made me sour. But one thing I try to remember is not everyone is as thankful as the last, and it does not stop me from doing something that makes me thankful.

Thankful people who move their feet experience an overall healthier mind and body, therefore making gratitude one of the best medicines.
