Most of us live in a world where we are always chasing the ‘next thing’ and want it to come to us easily and quickly. But we fail to see what we already have in our lives and appreciate this – we don’t see how the past challenges and struggles we have had add up to who we are now and what we have learned.
Gratitude – feeling thankful for other people, for life’s gifts and for everything we’ve heard, seen and experiences is immensely powerful. Gratitude is a powerful, positive emotion and research shows that it has many psychological, physical, interpersonal and spiritual benefits. There are strong links between gratitude and mental health and well as cultivating optimism, hope, compassion and joy.
What is most obvious is that most people are driven by a mindset of having. They believe they need to have things to be happy. The truth is, though, ‘stuff’ doesn’t bring happiness. It isn’t what you have, it is who are are. That is when life becomes truly extraordinary. When you learn to be who you are meant to be.
