If revenge is a dish best served cold, then gratitude is a dish best served out loud. William Faulkner once said, “Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: It must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.” There are lots of times where I feel thankful for someone or something, but how often do I follow up that feeling with action? Am I only grateful internally, or do I take the time to externally express my thanks? Right now there is so much spite and angst being spewed out into the ether, we really need a revolution of gratitude to change the overall mood in our country. What if, instead of filling the Thanksgiving table with negativity about everything we don’t like in the world, we filled it with thanksgiving. Expressing thanks on thanksgiving? Radical concept, I know. But, give it a try.
