With everything that is happening in the World these days, are you struggling to connect with Gratitude on a daily basis? Then I’m here to tell you that there’s no point struggling, it just doesn’t matter!
It doesn’t really matter what you’re grateful for. In fact, it could be absolutely anything. Someone else may think it’s trivial or silly, but you’re not doing it for someone else. It’s the feeling you get from gratitude that counts.
And sometimes it’s when things are at their toughest, that feeling better counts the most. A few seconds of playful thinking can help to turn around a bad day before it’s got started. Or stop it in it’s tracks. Which isn’t to say that negative feelings don’t have their place. They are there for a reason. But when negativity becomes a chronic thinking pattern, then maybe it’s time for a change.
And can it really be selfish to be grateful? When you feel good, it spills over into the rest of your life. And everyone in it will feel the benefit.
You could be grateful for just being alive.
Or seeing your first Bumble Bee of the season. A Queen, no less.
Or the sun cheekily deciding to shine after a long, cold winter.
Or a healthy, crustless quiche and minty bean salad for lunch.
Or a being taken for a walk in the country by your boisterous dogs.
Or seeing a fox run through your garden.
Or having so much inspirational reading just a few clicks away.
Or you could… fill in the blanks yourself.
