1000 Flowers for the Planet - #615 Observe World Gratitude Day
Today is World Gratitude Day. The celebration started in 1965 in Hawaii when an international gathering decided that it would be a good idea to have one day per year to formally express gratitude and appreciation for the many wonderful things to be found in the world. 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. If the majority of us concentrated on gratitude, there might be less conflict, and the world would be a far better place. Take time today to think about what you’re grateful for.
