Being Thankful

Gratitude, or feeling thankful, is super important for making us happy. When we thank someone or they thank us, it feels really good and motivates us to keep going. Plus, saying thanks helps us get along better with others and deal with tough times.

When life gets rough, gratitude helps us stay strong and positive. It reminds us of all the good things we have, even when times are tough. By focusing on the good stuff, we find the strength to keep going, no matter what.

Gratitude also makes the everyday stuff more special. Like when someone says something nice to us, or we notice the beauty of nature, gratitude makes those moments even better.

Basically, gratitude isn't just a feeling—it's a way of living that makes our relationships stronger, helps us stay positive during hard times, and makes every day a little brighter.

A Step by Step Guide

Building the Habit of Thankfulness

Let’s get really practical today. How can we transform our lives into a practice of thank-you?

You will need: • An amount of money you feel comfortable parting with today • An open mind, and a wide open heart for giving

1. You have probably already built the habit of saying thank-you when someone passes you something. So how can we build the habit of feeling and experiencing authentic thankfulness, for all the beautiful ordinary moments we receive each day?

2. Start by saying thank-you out loud to anything and everything that you can for just 1 day. This sounds extreme I know, but if done for a day, it will get you into the neurological habit of saying thank-you a lot. And you can have fun with this!

Thank-you toilet and thank-you soft, lovely toilet paper!

Thank-you sink and sweet smelling soap!

Thank-you water for hydrating me and taking good care of me.

Thank-you dog for making me smile.

Thank-you phone for connecting me with my brother in Australia, I’m so grateful that I get to hear his voice, thank-you so much.

Thank-you gorgeous rose for your bright color and bold smell.

Thank-you husband for choosing to spend this day with me.

Thank-you air for giving me life and for helping me breathe easy.

Thank-you closet for organizing my clothes without wrinkles I appreciate it so much.

Thank-you coffee for giving me all this energy and inspiration, I just love my life because you’re in it!

Ok you get the picture. I could say thank-you 100 times an hour. How about you?

3. If it feels great, keep saying thank-you either inwardly or out-loud in your life. Before too long you won’t need to use the words but your energy, your presence and everything about you will be an expression of thank-you.

From Dr. Zoë

Today, I simply couldn't resist the urge to express my heartfelt gratitude to you.

In a world where kindness can sometimes feel scarce, your presence in my life serves as a constant reminder of the goodness that surrounds us. Whether through your thoughtful actions, your encouraging words, or simply your warm smile, you have managed to make a profound impact on me, one that I am incredibly thankful for.

I am continuously amazed by your generosity of spirit and your capacity to make those around you feel valued and appreciated. You have a rare gift for brightening even the darkest of days with your infectious positivity, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

As I reflect on all the blessings in my life, I count you among the greatest. Thank you for being the incredible person that you are, and for blessing me with your friendship. Please know that your kindness does not go unnoticed or unappreciated—it is cherished more than words can express.

We love you. Fenix and Zoë 🤗
