That’s the unique opportunity when facing challenges, after the intensity of the challenge there may be feelings of gratitude that you made it through or honestly, it may be just flat out gratitude that it’s over.
What if we sought gratitude in the midst of the challenge?
You likely don’t need to consider for long if asked what challenges are you currently facing. To attach gratitude to the challenge takes energy, pause for reflection, and a greater amount of intention. It also requires kindness and compassion towards others and possibly yourself.
This holiday season, each person you pass is dealing with a challenge of some sort. As we are authentic with our own challenges and the hard work of forming a heart of gratitude even in hard spaces, we just might inspire hope to those around us who are in the midst of hard things. The quote in this issue by Melody Beattie reflects on what gratitude can do, it has the ability to “turn what we have into enough”
regardless of the circumstances. It doesn’t mean it’s easy, but it’s possible.
Let’s foster healthy spaces in our communities by expressing gratitude to those around us with greater intention.
