Every step I take…

At work this morning I was filling up the kettle and also a 5 litre bottle we use to save us walking to the kitchen so often (mad I know!) As the water was gushing out of the tap, gratitude suddenly struck me – the availability, the cleanliness, how plentiful it is, how I need it to stay alive! It is so easy for me to go on with my daily life with no thought of how lucky I am.

So, for as long as I remember, I will try to stop and appreciate…

The meals I have. I will try and enjoy each bite.

Each time I use water, whether it be to drink or wash.

The steps I’m taking.

The air I’m breathing.

The things I see, hear, smell, taste, feel.

Material things like my clothes, my phone, my TV, my home, my car.

My friends, family, fellows.

My movements.

My health.

My freedom.

A relative newbie to gratitude. Starting each day with a gratitude list sets me up for the day. This small effort starts a domino effect of positive action and subsequent serenity.

      1. There was a time we had no running water for a week thanks to a big pipe burst down the road, I was grateful for the energy at my age to balance a 20L basin on my head hahaha
