Everyone at The Brave Files Podcast is a big believer in the power and purpose of gratitude. We believe in expressing and showing gratitude and that by doing so we make not only our lives better. This is not only true for ourselves but also the lives of others.
That's why we have worked so hard to create this special episode featuring so many of our listeners, loved ones, and guests. Listening to this episode is sure to brighten your day, fill you with a little more, compassion, joy, and love.
What is gratitude?
Gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness. Magically, gratitude allows for a thankful appreciation for all that we receive whether those gifts are tangible or not. When we express and acknowledge gratitude we are giving breath and life to the goodness in our lives. As we do this, we begin to recognize that we are connected to something larger than ourselves — community, nature, the universe.
This exchange of good and positive thoughts allows us to develop deeper relationships with ourselves, our loved ones, essentially everyone and everything around us.
More than “Thank You”
However, it's important to remember that being grateful is more than simply saying “thank you” and being polite. Truly, expressions of gratitude are the beginning of all good things – – Generosity, courteousness, and showing concern and appreciation for others.
Still, we want to thank everyone who took the time to share their gratitude with us! Obviously, we could not have created this extra special episode without you.
