7 Ways to Find Gratitude Even When It Seems Impossible

In Faith

Last week was Thanksgiving and November, in general, tends to be a month where we focus on giving thanks.   This is so important because the more you look for gratitude, the more you will find it and then the more you start looking for what is right, then the less you will focus on what is wrong.   Then when you make that shift you will find so much peace and may even see a change in your spending which leads to healthier finances.
