It’s so beautiful being in a place of gorgeous peace. Peace doesn’t mean that everything in life is perfect. It’s about being at peace in spite of it.
Learning to practice gratitude is so wonderful and helpful in life. It’s been a long journey learning to wake up appreciative of every day.
Gratitude may look different for everyone. Writing things down that you’re thankful for is so lovely, or telling people you appreciate them in your life. It could be giving praise for all you’ve been given in life and being thankful for the ways you’re growing even in the difficult times.
Gratitude is beautiful in so many ways and a daily practice helps to bring peace. I noticed this recently when I realised just how much I enjoy my commute to work. Stuck in traffic on my hour drive, listening to a gorgeous uplifting podcast and taking time to be thankful. Sometimes it’s those moments in time where there are no distractions you learn to listen and slow down.
Recently I’ve been thankful for the car I drive, despite the traffic I love my commute to my wonderful job. Even though I park far away from work because there aren’t car parks closer I can listen to the birds sing and see the gorgeous view from the top of the hill and it’s absolutely stunning.
From depression and anxiety, heartache and not finding joy to now waking up appreciating all I have been given. Every day is not perfect but there are so many little things to enjoy and make the most of.
Even the commute to work 💕
