Definition: The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
One way to note down your gratitude, if you like to physically do it, is in a journal.
I use a lined LEUCHTTURM1917 and each day I will go about setting my intentions and add any to-do list beneath it.
Normally some things stay a constant, but then there are others that when you overcome challenges and obstacles that make you see things in a new light or make you grateful for other things too.
Meditation can help to aline your thoughts with your gratitude. At the beginning of my meditation, I will set the intentions for the day and think about what I am grateful for.
Having done this now for a good few months, the impact is especially noticeable on those days when things inevitably don’t go our way or my to-do list is adding up.
Gratitude can change your mindset which can subsequently help or adapt your life to be just that little bit calmer, and writing every morning becomes quite a meditative practice.
Gratitude is always important to show to people, to always show people kindness can do so much, as you never know what someone is going through. Even if you just hold a door open for someone, compliment on the barista’s hat or smile at a someone in the queue – sometimes even the smallest gesture can make a difference or change someone’s day.
We all need to be kind, always.
So, thank you for reading – see you in the next post.
