This Is 40. Make Finding Gratitude Easy In Your Life.
We can often humdrum around looking for the good in our lives, at least I do. Someone asked me today "How is 40?" I replied with "I'd rather be 20," but in hindsight, that was a terrible response. My birthday weekend contained laughter and a big celebration with amazing friends and family. None of the people I celebrated with this weekend were around when I was in my 20's. My life wouldn't have been the same without them. It made be realize I need to work on one thing in my 40's:
Sure things aren't perfect, and the wrinkles are appearing faster than zucchini on a summer vine. However, life is good, sweet and full. It brought me to the question of why can't we point out the good stuff? Why don't we spend more time cultivating things in our lives that bring joy? Maybe the key to a full life is finding compassion for ourselves and then others?
I hear cultivating gratitude is important as it is the driver of compassion. Compassion is what we need to connect each of us together every day. A wise man once told me compassion turns into joy.
Each day this week I'll be posting one thing where I find gratitude.
Follow along and let me know "Where do you find gratitude in your life?"
Until tomorrow friends.
