Everyone knows a foundational habit of a happy life is the practice of being grateful for the life we are already living, counting the blessings we already have, turning our attention to what we have, not to what we don't have.
Easier said than done in this consumer driven world where we are promised that happiness will be ours when we buy this one more thing.
So to make it easier for us to adopt this habit, every Thursday I post a quick and simple gratitude practice for you to try out.
Today notice all the people who assist you in your daily life.
Take a moment to sincerely appreciate at least one of them, no matter how small the assist is, or if s/he is paid to do so. The petrol attendant, the taxi driver, the check out clerk, the person who bags your groceries, the receptionist, the garbage collector.
Connect eye to eye, human to human and thank her or him for helping you.
Let's start a movement of thanking one another for our service!!
Let me know how it goes. I love to hear from you.
(If you would like to get this every Thursday in your Facebook newsfeed, like the One Million Suns Facebook.)
