What’s the value of gratitude? Why does it even matter? Day 9

10 Days of Holiday Gratitude from Muse

We at Muse practice gratitude and were so moved from Seth Godin’s Thanksgiving Reader that we challenged the diverse and talented group of people we’re proud to call our colleagues to chime in on this conversation.

Join us here on the blog daily for 10 Days of Holiday Gratitude from Muse.

Stay tuned. On Day 10 we’ll share our own gratitude in the form of a special surprise to all of our supporters.


What’s the value of gratitude? Why does it even matter?

There is a lot of negativity in the world, and every person is just trying to do their best with their own situation and given their own perspective. We all have goals and things we want to achieve, and focusing on those can feel like you have blinders on. So it’s important to step back and stop to check how far you’ve come and thank the people who have helped you along the way in the way of gratitude.

The value of gratitude isn’t monetary, but is emotional and very human. We move so quickly though our days and have so many thoughts running through our heads that taking a moment for gratitude will fill the human emotion inside. It matters to take a moment to reflect, as when you do accomplish those goals they will be valued more.
