“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses” Alphonse Karr.
I am a self-help book junkie and almost all the books I have read prescribe an attitude of gratitude.
I started writing a gratitude list every night before bed during an incredibly challenging time of my life and remain in awe of how powerful this practice was in changing my perception and experiences. These days I’m not as consistent so will spend today’s quiet quest writing one.
Writing a gratitude list gives you the opportunity to sit and recognise that nothing should be taken for granted and how much generosity and blessings you really do receive on a daily basis.
From gratitude, comes abundance and studies show that there is a strong link between gratitude, love and healing.
For those of you who like myself, have a small stationary addiction and delight in spending time in Kikki K, here is a good excuse to go buy yourself a lovely custom designed gratitude journal.
