World Change Wednesdays: Express Gratitude

I know I couldn't possibly say anything that hasn't already been said about being thankful and its impact on happiness, compassion, and making a positive difference in the world.  Thus, here are 7 curated items to help inspire gratitude!  The first is this photo to remind us that each new day is a gift for which to be grateful.
