GRATITUDE FOR GOOD
A Blog by Gratitude Alliance
Every 4 years, February 29th pops up in our calendars. It signifies that our human calendar needs an extra day to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical year. And, if it’s a Leap Year, it’s also an Olympic year and the US Presidential Election year. We’re used to it. It’s of passing interest. Then March 1st rolls around and our lives continue in the usual way.
But what if we see this extra 24 hours as something special, as a gift of extra time to reflect and realign? That’s the purpose of #24More. Global Gratitude Alliance has partnered with the creators of 24 More, Amani Institute and iLeap in celebration of and in gratitude for this day.
Our co-founder Amy Paulson will be slowing down to cultivate openness and curiosity. Other social changemakers will be centering themselves, remembering what's really important to them in their own unique ways.
So take a few moments to be mindful of the opportunity offered by whole extra day. 86,400 seconds. What will you do with an extra 24 hours, to align your purpose and your values?
Join us! Post your own message or video on social media, and use the hashtag #24More. Whatever you do, do it with purpose, intention, and gratitude. The gift of another day is truly something to be grateful for.
