How to Develop an Attitude of Gratitude
Thanksgiving Day is almost here — a day literally dedicated to giving thanks! How cool is that? However, for many a giant feast, some football and a much-needed day off (hopefully!) has overshadowed part of the celebration — an opportunity to be grateful. This Thanksgiving, Libertas Real Estate invites people to take the time be grateful. For those that have struggled this year, particularly amid COVID-19, being grateful can actually help improve one’s power of positive thinking, which can lead to true happiness. So let’s develop an attitude of gratitude this season! Here’s how to get started:
The leadership at Libertas Real Estate believes in the power of positive thinking, and this stems from being grateful. This can start with simply looking on the bright side instead of the negative side of any situation. When a negative thought creeps into one’s mind, turn the thought around to the opposite — a positive thought. This can help people become more grateful by simply looking at something from a place of positivity versus negativity. It goes back to the age old question: “Is the glass half full or glass half empty?” Well, it’s both, depending on who is looking at it — and how they are looking at it.
For those looking to add more gratitude in their lives, looking at things from a “half glass full” perspective is a great place to start. Look around for the “positives” — the good things in life. Look harder for the beauty in every day. It’s all there — some people just don’t see it because they aren’t really looking for it. Gratitude is also about simplicity. Being thankful for “everyday” things such as a beautiful sunrise, a delicious meal, or special time with family, can help people develop an attitude of gratitude. Consider taking a few minutes each night before going to bed to think of the best parts of that day. Perhaps it was reading a few chapters of a good book or talking with a friend. Being thankful for these seemingly little things can help people become more positive just by being grateful. And life tends to be a lot more enjoyable when going through each day with a positive, grateful attitude!
Libertas Real Estate is grateful for all its hardworking agents and the clients they are able to help find dream homes for. From the Libertas family — have a happy, safe Thanksgiving and a kick-off to a joyous holiday season.
