It’s nearing the end of day nine of the be kind to yourself challenge, and the requirement of today’s exercise was to actively practice gratitude. This could be done in many ways, in any way that makes your comfortable. For me, I like to write them down in a notebook. This allows me to visually see the items and actually feel the feelings of gratitude.
I wrote about being surrounded by love and that I’m grateful to have the support that I need. I will always be grateful for the love of my family, even though I sometimes take it for granted. It’s through this exercise that I can see how much more I need to be appreciative of the things that I have. Actively practicing gratitude early in the morning, set up for the rest of my day to be peaceful.
Through the ease of my mind, I was able to see more clearly. I was able to see the bigger picture, as they say. Which isn’t always as easy as it may seem, but through peace, it can be achieved. I’ve been living my life with my head feeling full, with constant worry. This practice has been my favorite so far in this challenge, one that I will most certainly continue on. For peace is my greatest ally.
