To practice gratitude is something that we all should do. I have started to write down 3 things every morning that I’m grateful for using 3 Good Things. Happiness is also something that we all strive towards- right? What then is the secret to this? Money, health, great family, amazing friends, supportive partner, successful children, well trained pets, own your home, live in a secure area, love your job? The list goes on… I am starting to think that there is no secret though… Having stumbled across this Ted talk: Want to be happy- be grateful it makes me realise what a powerful word gratefulness truly is. And also how powerful the feeling of being grateful really is. I love the idea of tagging things in the home that we take for granted such as the tap. Not everyone has this feature in their home.
I’ve talked prior about how I see the world and everything in it developing in cycles. I think all this meditation, yoga and mindset is something that is in a growth stage. If you look at the product life cycle, we have:
- Development or research
- Growth stage
- Maturity stage
- Decline stage
We are where this kind of thinking is becoming more mainstream and gaining more and more acceptance. More and more of us are practicing this. Some of us have perhaps always done it?
This week, I challenge you and recommend you to write down 3 things every day that you are grateful for. Nothing complicated, simple things such as where you live, the weather, positive things about yourself, your health, that you make someone happy in your life, the air, water and so on…
I also think it’s important to think about the here and the now and how you can truly make a difference. In your life and for people around you. Try it! Accept this challenge and let me know how you get on- it’s a challenge for 7 days that might make you think slightly different. You have nothing to lose! I truly recommend: every day, write down 3 things that you are grateful for!
