I'll have to keep this one short. Andie and I were out celebrating tonight. Today she passed her Boards exam in order to become a Physical Therapist. Next month we get married. This is a special time. I'm trying to figure out how to slow it down. I'm not sure
As is the answer to most things, I established that the answer for me is gratitude. Specifically, particular gratitude.
You might think that someone so good would be too cool or over it, like many who received the same accolade, but he's not. He's grateful. His gratitude seems to always lead to a sense of joy and wonder.
The more we bring our attention to what we have to be grateful for, the more our appreciation appreciates.
Take at least a moment every day to truly appreciate what you have. We're very lucky.
If you’re open to it, I’d encourage you to use at least one of the ideas above to bring 5% more fresh appreciation to something you do today, I think it’s worth it. I hope you do too.
The more I celebrate, the more I desire to do the things that I find worth celebrating.
Rather than building up frustration on what we think “should” be, we can rest on a proven practice to steer us towards a happier and healthier state, we can rest on gratitude.
Gratitude can be challenging. Even with its myriad benefits, we forget to set aside time to consciously be grateful. Though remembering to be grateful can be challenging, we can make practicing gratitude easy.
