We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasuresThornton Wilder
Gratitude, the dictionary defines gratitude as “the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful.
“A Grateful Heart is a Happy Heart”
Gratitude has been said to be the mother of all virtues as cultivating an attitude of gratitude generates other virtues such as humility, compassion, wisdom, joy, integrity and trust plus many more.
The mindful practice of gratitude consistently, has been scientifically proven to have positive effects on our brain.
Expressing gratitude consistently provides liberation of the mind from the endless wants and worries over your life.
When we practice selfless gratitude, we shift our concerns from being mostly about ourselves and those close to us, to being about all living beings.
With this comes the realisation that we are part of a large universe, where everything has flow and purpose.
We become more conscious of the wonderment of the world and all its blessings and as we give thanks for this wonderment our minds are released from the shackles of self concerns and our sense of wellbeing becomes greater.
Being mindful in gratitude supports us in responding not reacting to life challenges. We move into a place of grace where we acknowledge that there is a bigger perspective, which we might not currently be aware of and this knowledge leads to clarity of mind of what really matters to you in the present moment.
There are many ways to cultivate gratitude in our daily lives, one of which is keeping a “Gratitude Journal”
