Claire's List: 10 Things I'm Thankful For This Season

It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s time to show some gratitude for the blessings in our lives. Rebecca shared hers yesterday, now here’s Claire…

Growing up, I thought Thanksgiving was such a snoozefest. No presents? It’s 20 degrees out? We’re all supposed to “ooh” and “ahh” over a dead roast bird? Even the sludge brown decorative color scheme of the holiday seemed like a letdown to my 7-year-old self compared to the bright greens and reds and blues of December. These days, flaws of Thanksgiving and its history aside (there are many), I’m really glad there’s a designated time of year to appreciate all the good stuff we’ve got going in our lives. Here are some things I’m thankful for this year! Keep reading »

Study: Gratitude Will Make You New Friends

A new study from the University of New South Wales has found that expressing gratitude to new acquaintances will earn you friends. The study was put together to explore a theory that suggests that gratitude helps people create new relationships, build on the ones they already have, and help to maintain both. In an effort to test the “new relationships” aspect of that theory, researchers studied 70 university students who gave advice to younger peers. The students were told that they were mentoring high school students and critique their university admissions essays. Afterwards, the mentors received handwritten notes from their faux mentees, and only about half of those notes included an expression of thanks for assisting them with their essays. The mentors who were thanked were more likely to give the younger students their contact information and presumably continue the friendship. The mentors also reported warmer personalities when it came to the grateful mentees, and that warmth is probably why grateful people make lots of friends. Keep reading »

A Book To Be Thankful For

Thank you notes are kind of a lost art, and that’s why writer Leah Dieterich has made it her mission to bring ‘em back. In her new book, Thx Thx Thx: Thank Goodness for Everything, she lovingly pays homage to all the things she’s thankful for, from the big to small. In the book, Dieterich writes a thank you note a day, to everything from her ponytail (for keeping her hair out of her face) to her ring finger (for being just as powerful without jewelry on it as with it). We could all use a little more gratitude in our lives, wouldn’t you say?
