Research and life experience indicates when we reflect on what is working in our lives, we strengthen our attitude of gratitude and improve our outlook.
Gratefulness makes us count our blessings, appreciate kindness around and in us, and feel thankful for small pleasures in daily living.
Instead of dreading colder weather, grateful people see winter as a chance see the beauty in the first snowfall, the shimmering colors in sparkling icicles, and sense each breath of crisp winter air with wonder.

Perhaps you appreciate being able to enjoy an outdoor firepit or fireplace, or bask in the warmth of a crackling fireplace indoors.
The colorful glow of the flames are a fine backdrop for reading a feel good book, listening to an audio love story, or simply daydreaming.
