Cultivate gratitude

It’s a bit of wisdom sages and spiritual teachers have handed down for millenia, and it’s as true now as it ever was –

A mind of gratitude is essential to becoming an evolved, thoughtful and spiritually awakened human being.

Sometimes, I struggle with carrying out this timeless advice, but I’m developing the habit of silently expressing thanks for another day and the opportunity to improve.

Here’s a little tip I found helpful – write an affirmation on a slip of paper that you can glance at several times a day to remind yourself to be grateful for being alive.

Try this phrase or make one up yourself –

Thank you for this day and for the opportunity to help others.

See the link below, and let me know what you think.

“Although introversion and social anxiety may look like a psychological potato-potahto, they’re really more like apples and oranges. How can you tell the difference between social anxiety and introversion? What’s the bright line between an introverted temperament to be honored and social fear to be challenged?” – Ellen Hendriksen
