Last week, over a video call, my little niece recited a beautiful poem for me she learned at the nursery. Watching her putting the rhymes together with a happy and a shy expression on her face made my day. It was priceless and made me think how precious and important these everyday moments truly are. These are the moments I’m very grateful for and treasure so much.
Expressing gratitude for the little things in life makes life more colourful and meaningful. Watching a beautiful sunrise or a sunset, waking up to a peaceful song of a little blackbird outside your window, admiring a meadow full of daisies, appreciating a lovely meal your spouse cooked for you or receiving a sweet text from a caring friend…all of these everyday things are the ones that matter the most.
Having a grateful heart for the little things in our lives truly turns everything else into enough. They are the most precious things that bring smiles to our faces and peace to our souls.
So here is a question for you: What are you grateful for today?
Start noticing and really pay attention to all that you appreciate in your life.
I will leave you today with this beautiful quote:
‘Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.’ – Eileen Caddy
