I am a huge believer in practicing gratitude and I do feel that practicing is the correct word. It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well. Never do things always go well though and each of us has our struggles. By practicing gratitude regularly, it becomes a way of life so that when things AREN’T going so well, we have already become really good at finding the best in a situation. At the end of many of my classes we take a minute to put as many people, places, things, etc., on our silent gratitude list and many of my students have let me know how much this has helped their perspective. If you are reading this on your computer, tablet or phone, you already have a ton to be grateful for. Not just for the device, but more importantly for your eye sight, for the time to sit and be online, for the ability to read, a brain that understands, etc.,
I am often reminded of what I learned when watching that documentary Happy recently….More money just doesn’t equate to more happiness. I found this one on Facebook this morning and thought it was worth a share….
