Gratitude

Practising gratitude involves noticing the goodness in the world, creating a place for hope to grow. It makes sure that in the midst of negativity, we can notice the good.

Finding hope and light in our lives when we have experienced loss is crucial. Being able to take that pause in our day to be grateful for even the smallest things can make a big difference. For me, it has been stopping and noticing the Monarch butterflies that seem to be in abundance at the moment. Seeing their transformation is a beautiful reminder to us all of the cycle of change, hope and life.

Practising gratitude can make a difference in growing and nurturing feelings of hope. It helps us see the goodness in this world.
