It's Thanksgiving Day here, in the United States, a holiday that for me, the immigrant, has become so very important.
Science shows a direct link between our ability to feel that sense of "thank you" and our overall happiness level.
"Research has repeatedly pointed to a so-called happiness set point—a baseline for happiness that makes some people just naturally happier than others, regardless of the external circumstances—gratitude research highlights the potential for raising that home base of happiness by as much as 25 percent," writes neuroscientist Friederike Fabritius.
So, how about we get happier by 25% right now?
Here is the list of all the things I am thankful for today (in no particular order) - as a way to invite you to write down your own:
I thank you for being part of my global reinvention family.
I thank you for daring to imagine a better way forward - and actually making it happen.
I thank you for every reply, every comment, every story, every courageous and hopeful attempt to go through this life fully alive.
