I’m writing this blog post on Thanksgiving morning, and I’ve already seen an abundance of people expressing their gratitude on social media.

Despite the underlying reasons why we celebrate Thanksgiving in regard to indigenous people, I’m happy to see people expressing how thankful and grateful they are today.

But can you imagine if people expressed this amount of gratitude on a daily basis?

I cultivate a life of gratitude.

I start all of my coaching sessions, both as a coach and as a client, with gratitude.

Every night I write down three specific things I’m grateful for before I go to bed. If I’m traveling and don’t have a pen and paper, I speak out loud the three things I’m grateful for specific to that day.

It’s what I do and it works for me. In the past year, I’ve seen a huge mindset shift in how I perceive the people, things, and events in my life.


Here are some things I’m grateful for today:

I am grateful for finding my purpose, to serve me fellow brethren as I continue to grow and improve in my life.

I am grateful for the deep relationships with the men in my life.

I am grateful for the rekindled relationships with family members. I’ve been let back in after pushing many people away.

I am grateful for my mentors and those who continue to teach, challenge, and inspire me to be greater.

I am grateful for my new perspectives on women and relationships – as a man it requires a lot of love, understanding, and effort to create new things with the feminine.

I am grateful for the end of a relationship that started this journey one year ago.

I am grateful for the next year in my journey and the growth I’ll achieve.


This post is going out on Black Friday. All the Thanksgiving gratitude seems to dissipate as soon as the pumpkin pie is finished and the Black Friday ads are pulled out.

Why do we only dedicate one day out of the year to being thankful and grateful?

What would life be like if you reflected on the things you’re grateful for every day?

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, what are you grateful for today?
