When it's November, the Thanksgiving season is upon us. Different people do different things during the season, but one common thing across the board is the feeling of being thankful. The question is, is being thankful the same as having the energy of gratitude? Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States and Canada, where they celebrate the harvest and other blessings of the past year. During this holiday, people give thanks and spend time with their relatives and friends. Also, people tend to binge on specific meals like turkey, pies, and cranberry sauce. Lili was born and raised in Brazil. She only experienced Thanksgiving once she moved to the US. According to Lili, growing up, the most important holiday for her was Christmas. Although born and raised in the US, Shannon could be a better fan of the Thanksgiving holiday. She dislikes Thanksgiving food and always eats before. For Shannon and Lili, the energy of gratitude is a state of being. Being grateful is a lifestyle. You can be as meta or micro as you'd like. Also, we must learn to be grateful for good and the challenging things. Sometimes, the bad things are a blessing in disguise, and we only learn that later.

The idea behind the "energy of flow" is that this state of optimal engagement can create a positive and energizing experience. It often leads to increased creativity, productivity, and fulfillment. Many people seek to find activities and tasks that allow them to experience this flow state regularly. If you have been in a state of flow, you can easily confirm how good that felt and how optimistic you were.
