Why a Gratitude Practice is worth it... (blog quickie)

Gratitude practice


Sometimes life hits a sticky patch and I feel as if I am wading through treacle, I know that the way forward is not going to be easy.

This is when my reserves start to run on empty, when I start to feel out of sorts and the edge of life slips out of my hands. I feel as if I am in free fall. There is nothing to hold onto, no parachute. Just the insane feeling, that if I do not think fast, I am going to hit concrete.

Gratitude helps with this – The day, week, month or even year may be hell.

However, when I focus, be present and see the good that is happening all around me, it is easier for me to re-group and to keep on making the slow steps through the treacle.
