What do you have to be thankful for, Mavens? Some things probably immediately come to mind.
But do you often go deeper then that? Wider then that? Can you see how much there is all around you to be grateful for in every single moment?

But when we do pause and let ourselves start looking around and taking in all there is to be grateful for, it roots us back in the present, it re-connects us with ourselves, it makes us feel satisfied with all that we have in this moment.
