Gratitude - Three Good Things
18 February 2023
Can you find something to be grateful for even on the grey days? While taking this video, I was grateful for seeing flying ducks, hearing the crashing waves, and how you can hardly tell where the sky stops and the sea starts.
Three Good Things Gratitude Practice
- Take a few minutes to reflect on your day.
- Pick three things you are grateful for that happened to you- no matter how small.
- Feel deep thanks in the body as you reflect on why you are grateful for each one.
- Reflect on the cause of each thing and recognise what the source of each thing is.
Often, many of the things we are grateful for are gifts bestowed upon us from something outside of ourselves.
For example, due to other people, fate, or nature…
Acknowledge that many of the things we are grateful for are gifts bestowed upon us from something external and beyond our control, and we are blessed enough to be the one who benefits.
Try this practice for a few minutes, a few times a week.
