"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." - Dr. Seuss
Gratitude reminds us to celebrate the wonderful experiences in our lives rather than being sad that they are over!
Summer has ended (unless you live in the Caribbean!) and the change of seasons can feel like the end of a chapter in our year. Maybe there is a hint of sadness as we make this transition, sort of like the emotional dip we can feel after an amazing vacation!
Living in the Caribbean, I like to keep that "vacation vibe" going all year long! Even if you don't live in paradise you can do this too, because paradise is a state of mind and not a destination!
I believe gratitude brings us back to the joy of the experience, and reminds us to delight in the memories of the experience, while also continuing to look forward to the future, and all the wonder that awaits.
Last October I was so full of gratitude after surviving a very unsettling and tumultuous year! While this year has been a bit different, I am still finding myself full of gratitude for all that is! So we are celebrating "Gratitude Month" again here at FantaSea Jewelry, because it's always a good day to be grateful!
