“It is gratitude that expands my ability to receive beauty in my life.” – Oriah
When I focus on all the wonder in my life I am significantly happier. Life seems easier and sparklier when I write mini gratitude lists or jot down the magic that exists in my days.
Example: I am grateful for morning runs, Luca naps, muesli with chocolate, and quiet mornings. I’m grateful for rain showers, loud booms of thunder, and the picture of a rainbow my brother sent me via What’s App. I’m thankful for unicorn stickers, handmade stamps, fresh lavender, and homemade cookies.
Sometimes I forget this super simple practice and my life then reflects it.
When I have a clear space to write down highlights from the day life gets even sweeter.
Start with the basics. Let it ramble. Let the words tumble out.
Write in the morning. Write at the end of the day. Find a time and just write anyway.
