Summary

Thankful Thursday is a practice to give thanks every Thursday, rather than once per year on the traditonal Thanksgiving Holiday in the US.  We hope that the quotes we have provided hear give you some food for thought on how to cultivate an attitude of grtatitude.  Not only on Thursday, but every day.

President John F. Kennedy said “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”  Thankful Thursday gives you 52 times each year to do or say something to show your gratitude to the people who make a difference in your life.

Research indicates that people who take time to consistently reflect on the blessings in their lives  experience better health, more happiness, and are able to achieve more success.

Some steps you can take to make practicing Thankful Thursday a habit are: starting a Gratitude Journal, playing the Abraham-Hicks Rampage of Appreciation Game, posting a quote on social media that is inpirational to you and others, writing a hand written (not an email) thank you note to someone who has helped you, or perform a random act of kindness (pay it forward to thank those who have helped you).

Here are a few ideas for starting points for a journal entries:

What are you most grateful for at this time?  
How can you show more gratitude daily?
What makes you smile?
What are three difficult periods in your life that you are now grateful to have experienced?
What are five family memories from your childhood that you are grateful for?
Who are some people in your life that you should write a note or thank you card to?

Following is an explanation of the Abraham-Hicks Rampage of Appreciation Game that was noted previously.  You can click the link in the above section for a very short video of Abraham (via Esther Hicks) discussing how to do the exercise. 

Anytime you have a few minutes or are waiting for something, look around at your surrondings and find something to appreciate.  It doesn’t have to be complex or have great significance in your life.  It could be as simple as your car. Explain to yourself why you appreciate it.  Then, quickly move on to a second item or person that you appreciate, and a third, and continue.

So take some time right now to get out a piece of paper and list the top 10 things that you are grateful for today!
