February 14 means that love is in the air, right? At the very least, we can conclude that the commercialization of Valentine’s Day creates the perception of love being in the air. However, people share and receive love in many different ways. That may or may not include flowers, chocolates, and stuffed animals. One of my favorite ways of connecting with people is to express gratitude. Thrive into the Weekend by expressing your gratitude to those that you hold dear in your heart. Watch the video below to inspire sentiments of gratitude within your important relationships. Take it one step further by daily identifying a few people, things, or experiences that you feel grateful over the coming week.
