with gratitude…

gratitude Happy Thanksgiving BeautySweetSpot readers!  I love Thanksgiving Day simply because it’s another excuse to get together with my family, but to be honest, I think highlighting the celebration of gratitude one day out of the year is BS.  I want to let you know that I’m grateful for all of you, as without you, I wouldn’t be blessed with this career.  I encourage you to remember the feeling you have on Thanksgiving and carry it with you daily – practice gratitude, it’s a lifestyle.  We all get so caught up in the grind that we often tend to forget about all that we have.  Live for today, in the present and be grateful for each moment, each encounter and each opportunity.  Have a great day!
