Rather than making a list of three or five or more things for which we are grateful each day, I wonder how much more impact we might feel from a practice of sitting quietly for a short period of time to notice just one thing for which, in that in that moment, we feel deeply thankful.
Naming a large number of things we are grateful for is not the most important thing, nor is ticking off a number of suggested actions from a list like the one mentioned above. What is important is the authentic sense of joy and happiness and, yes, gratitude that we can truly
feel in a moment of focused awareness. When we can do that, we will find ourselves more deeply connected to life and our actions and our experiences will benefit positively in profound ways.
