Today is a milestone episode that is being celebrated in a very special way. We have been discussing gratitude extensively on the podcast for one year and to close up our season of “Attitude of Gratitude” we are hearing from THE authority on gratitude, Dr. Robert Emmons.

For over 20 years Dr. Emmons has researched, taught, and wrote about the topic of gratitude concluding simply that, “Gratitude Works”. In our conversation he shares with us how an assignment to study gratitude changed the course of his own life and gave him the opportunity to understand one of the most powerful tools that we have available to us right now.

He shares that, “Gratitude is the truest approach to life” and we can CHOOSE to walk in gratitude no matter what our circumstances. He believes that “Gratitude energizes and shapes the future” and actually “frees” us in our day-to-day life. We also discuss the routine of gratitude and how we can develop the habit while our lives are already so busy.

We hope that you enjoyed this episode and loved this series of Attitude of Gratitude as much as we have. Moving forward we are going to be focusing heavily on building our community. Find us on Facebook at  Hope to Recharge. As always, together is better!
