There are so many reasons to be grateful, and now that we have finally reached the end of the year, it's time to reflect, give, share and grow.

Here are some ways to express gratitude this Christmas and be thankful for our endurance and accomplishments.
This Christmas, show gratitude by helping out during the clean up after the big meal. Not only will we be showing gratitude for our family, but taking a moment to wash the dishes together or sharing a laugh while picking up plates will be the moments you cherish most.
Creating a vision board can be motivational before entering the new year. It can help us reflect on what we have accomplish as well as set goals for the new year.
Keep others warm this holiday season by donating old winter clothes. It is a great way to help those in need, and also remind us to be grateful for the warmth we have.
After working hours on end the entire year, take time to be thankful for the days off you have with friends and family. It only happens ever so often to remember to be present in the moment.
Reaching out to a loved one we haven't seen in a while may be overwhelming. Whether it's parents, siblings or an old friends. Express gratitude for their presence in our life. By the end of the call we will be full of gratitude and love. It doesn't hurt to remind someone you love them!
