How do we practice gratitude? Some people keep thankfulness journals where once a day or a few times a week they literally write down things they are thankful for. Some families take time before the evening meal to each list off the things they are thankful for. A lot of times it starts off pretty shallow, but the more you practice the better you get. David Steindl-Rast has a very simple gratitude practice he calls “stop, look, go.” He says it’s as easy as crossing the street. As you go through your day, stop every now and then and look. Find something amazing and let it fill you with gratitude. Then go. Thank God for it. Thank another person for it. Speak it out loud or silently to yourself. Or go do something good or kind as a result.
