Gratitude Part 3 – Gone Viral!

I have a vision, a dream that starts with one person and passes on to the next. The goal: Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is not like a Santa Claus that emerges once a year accompanied by a turkey. Don’t get me wrong, there are few meals I like more than a thanksgiving feast. However, I am struck by how easily we forget about gratitude. 

Gratitude is an attitude, not an event.

Gratitude is incredible. Gratitude decreases stress, it boosts our immune systems, increases and stimulates the pleasure areas on our brains, and aids mental health; it is linked to better performance in school/work/daily tasks, helps us sleep better, helps us cope with the difficult areas of life, and–my favorite– it substantially enriches our relationships.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt its core, gratitude gives us the opportunity to value the aid that another person gives us, whether that be filling our gas tank, making us a latte, helping us with a work assignment, making us dinner, or giving us a hug. Gratitude could be as simple as saying “thank you” for being my friend. Or “thank you for caring for me even when I don’t say nice things.” Thankfulness is synergistic, as it enriches both the giver and the receiver.

Gratitude is why our parents taught us to say “thank you.” It’s why some of us learned to say “thanks” before our meal. You don’t have to be religious to take a moment and be thankful that we have the opportunity to eat a warm meal when millions have to go without.

At Caravan, we are on a mission to spread gratitude. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe are giving out thank you cards to our wholesale customers to hand out to others. We want to spread the gratitude. We are thankful for every single customer, from the tasting room to our wholesale customers.

So go ahead, thank someone. Thank your customer, thank your wife, thank your brother, thank your co-worker, thank your mail person. Write them a note, send them some chocolate, buy some flowers for them. Let them know how much they mean to you; for without them, you wouldn’t be where you are.
