In August, I discovered a lot more about myself and discovered the roots of all goodness!
The Roots Of All Goodness
l delved deeper into gratitude and found how it can change my perspective so much more. (You can read my series on Grateful Perspective.)
I realised that gratitude goes much deeper than making gratitude lists – it is truly a way of living. The deeper I appreciate life and all its beauty, the more grateful I become. And it’s not just gratitude for the ‘good things’. It’s an ability to carry the grief, the pain, the heaviness that life brings and see it all as making up the soil, for the roots of goodness to go even deeper.
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.Dalai Lama
In August I was grateful for :
Life – all 57 years of life experiences. Yes, I celebrated my birthday, with gratitude.
Flowing productively – I was grateful for small signs of progress. Thanks to Morgan Harper Nichols for this line!
Love – especially from my husband, who truly understands me and accepts me for who I am.
Restating my principles – and attempting to live a life aligned with them.
Reading material – books and the many blogs I follow – provided inspiration, ideas and entertainment.
There’s so much more that I’m thankful for, but most of all, I’m thankful for a deeper appreciation of gratitude.
