Legend has it that World Gratitude Day started in the paradise that is Hawaii, around 1965. A group of people decided to create a day of celebration for all the things we have in our lives to be grateful for. It sounded like a wonderful idea and so Sept 21st became Gratitude Day around the world. And each year the celebration and appreciation of all the tangible and intangible blessings available to us has grown and grown.
I think the root of the Gratitude Day is the perfect time to reflect on those things and memories we each posses from our lives that bring us feelings of gratitude. And its a great day to thank those family, friends and also those we do business with ( customers )
Why Is Gratitude Important ?
The awareness of the benefits of having time in one’s life for gratitude, appreciation and positive reflection have become increasingly apparent. The hope of the founders of Gratitude Day is that by taking time, one day a year, to reflect on the many amazing things we have in our lives, it would positively impact our well-being and make us happier, more contented people.
