I have been practicing mindfulness for nearly a year now and it has become natural. I no longer need to write down what I am grateful for because I just think about it. The more I think, the more I find stuff to be grateful for. This morning, I was thankful for the medical progress which enables me to take a little pill and have my health issues being solved. Isn’t that mad ?
Anyways, I realised I write about my blessings and people I love, but maybe I don’t write enough to let them know how I feel. And they should do. So I took the time to write little notes, because a text is easy. I have always relied on them. But a note or a letter requires time, it requires getting envelops, stamps and finding the address. A letter shows I care about enough to spend that extra time . So that’s what I did today. And I giving that love has made me feel full of love even more.
Practise this too:
- List those you are grateful for in life, maybe at a time they have helped you
- List the last events when you needed friends and they were here for you
- Write down on any support the love you feel, maybe add a little box of chocolate or something you know they will like
- Deliver or post
Now how good do you feel about yourself ?
