The Difference Between Being Thankful and Being Grateful

Author(s): Tessa Masula

In her article on the Odyssey website (a collection of writing from young people), Tessa Masula contemplates what it means to be thankful versus what it means to be grateful. She hits on some key differences and encourages all of us to keep gratitude at the front our minds, even through all the busy-ness of life.

This idea is especially relevant to nurses, who spend their days taking care of others with little time to reflect on what they’re grateful for…a joke among co-workers, a quiet conversation with a patient that helps quell fear, the opportunity to mentor and teach new nurses.

Read Tessa’s full article here, and take a moment to acknowledge everything you have to be grateful for.
