“Gratitude… More aware of what you have than what you don’t. Recognizing the treasure in the simple— a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common— a warm bed, a hot meal, a clean shirt.” Max Lucado.
Sometimes all we need to do is read a quote like this to realize how fortunate we really are. People tend to forget to slow down and understand that those simple things in life are what really matters, not your strive for “more.”
What are you wrestling with inside of you? What interferes with your ability to remember that the “simple” pleasures in life are what truly matters? They really do!
Are your insecurities disabling you to cherish moments? Do you know? Be honest with yourself. Don’t hide.
It is your health, the relationships you hold and self awareness (I believe), that’s capable of providing you with this “gratitude”. Once you are able to appreciate all things, there lives peace.
Inside you, your being, your very soul desires “peace”. A calmness and stillness that allows you to see things as they are, beautiful.
A soft touch, a friendly hello, and a rainy day are little things that mean a lot, even more than you know.
Try and appreciate the little things in life today, it may open your eyes and possibly change your attitude. You may even catch yourself inhaling and then exhaling a deep sigh with gratitude…… a smile will suddenly appear!
Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.
