What does ‘gratitude’ mean to you?

How often in life do you focus on the blessings and show appreciation to those who mean the most to you?

This one emotion can be life changing if you allow yourself to live in the present and see the world for its beauty. It’s what makes us truly human and provides much needed perspective.

In today’s episode on Strong By Design co-host Chris Wilson discusses the power of gratitude with friends and colleagues Samanatha Harrison and Kristen Dixon. Giving thanks and praise for every breath we take, for every day we have and for our connection to nature and our relationships helps give true meaning to our lives.


"Gratitude comes in all different forms. We need to slow down a bit to acknowledge and embrace it in order to show [gratitude] to others. -Kristen Dixon
