You don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of you if you pay attention and practice gratitude.
Gratitude List 30/01/2018
That my worries are ‘nothing to worry about’.
My improved self-esteem
That I am currently in no pain.
My appreciation of beauty and the simple fact I now acknowledge it in the first place.
Although I often have to remind myself, I am grateful for every single bite of food and every single sip of water.
That no matter what, it can always be worse.
For my sanity.
Criticism, experiences, mistakes, failures and challenges. Respectively I can learn from them all.
The time I get to spend with the people I love and have fun with.
For everyone who has shown me tolerance, consideration and understanding.
Gratitude List 29/01/2018
That I woke up.
My eyes to see.
My ears to hear.
My mouth to speak.
My back to stand.
My legs to walk.
My hands to touch.
My lungs to breathe.
My heart to love.
My brain to learn.
I wrote my first gratitude list in February 2017 at the age of 39. Since then I have tried to find gratitude in whoever, wherever, whenever and whatever. For too long had I taken the simple things for granted. Almost a year later I now find myself appreciating a wide variety of things such as clean water and my freely given miracle of sight. This way of thinking has assisted in the transformation of the way I currently perceive and live my life. I have set up this blog with the intention of sharing gratitude on a daily basis. Today I have gratitude for gratitude. May you find gratitude too.
