30 Days of Gratitude

I have a lot to be grateful for in my life. From a healthy family to a successful education, I come across one blessing after the other.

However, truly having gratitude for the wonderful things in life can be a difficult thing to
obtain. It is too easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of daily tasks that keep us busy, assuming the precious commodities we have are obligated to be in our lives.

Only when we slow down, reflective, and notices our commodities do we learn to see them

as gifts and privileges. We learn to see the true value of the items at our disposal, to appreciate the people who touch our lives, and to treasure the moments that disappear before our eyes but leave a lasting imprint in our memories forever.

Practicing gratitude has an abundance of benefits. It boost positivity, increases enjoyment of life, and teaches how to express compassion and kindness. These are all qualities one must have during the spiritual journey, which is why I will be starting a 30 Day of Gratitude challenge. I have many things to be grateful for and believe this practice will open my eyes to many more. This will be a valuable step in my journey.

After all, how one prepare for a trip without taking stock of what they have?
