Tomorrow sees the first post from our new features writer Susan Cox. Susan is a practitioner of meditation, mindfulness, hypnotherapy and soul plan based in Kent, UK. Susan works under the name Minding the Soul and will be sharing a weekly post with us on a variety of useful topics and life improving tools. Here’s a taster of what is to come.
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
― Marcel Proust
Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. It has the power to eclipse negativity and to transform it. It has the power to show us the beauty present in our own lives and to remind us to thank those who make our lives what they are. What are you grateful for today?
Living a grateful life doesn’t require that you thank people profusely for every single thing they do, it’s a life of little but meaningful actions. A quick thanks here and there to the people or even the forces that have helped you along your journey expresses your gratitude perfectly. Two or three minutes of silent reflection in the morning or the evening also allows you to silently share gratitude and reflect on your day or life. There is so much of our lives we can find gratitude in.
People like to be appreciated and so the gratitude spreads, improving the days of everyone. This reflection also allows you to celebrate the good in your day and embrace gratitude’s transformational power over negative events.
Family, friends and strangers – all of these can improve our days by giving us things to be grateful for and we can in turn improve theirs by sharing our gratitude with them.
Love and blessings,
