Weekly Gratitude – 33 #SoulfulSunday

What is the most important thing in your life? What is that one thing that you can’t live without? What is that one thing that decides your happiness?

For me, the answer is absolutely simple. The one thing that’s absolutely essential for me in my life, no matter the circumstance of my life, is peace. Mental peace.

If I can find my mental peace, then I can get through any situation, no matter how tense the situation is.

When I count my blessings every day, I feel at peace with who I am. This irrelevant life of mine suddenly fills up with abundance when I count my blessings instead of focusing on what is lacking in my life.

It’s an extremely easy solution for me to flip the view from feeling empty to being content. By just taking a moment to appreciate being able to stand straight and walk properly, I feel happiness trickling in my heart.

When I talk about counting blessings and living a life in gratitude, often people think of it as a joke. Of course, if you have never experienced the joy of gratitude, then it would be a joke to you.

What do you value

But, if you intend to make space for peace in your life and mind, then gratitude is the easiest and simplest path to travel. Today I invite you to take a moment and share what is the most important thing in your life in the comments. If you would like to take it further, then try to connect the dots between what you cherish deeply with gratitude. Do you see a connection?

  1. I agree that peace is very important to me, too. I lost my peace for a bit this morning. But this afternoon I was able to settle into doing some activities that brought me joy and my peace returned.

  2. You said it, Vinitha! I can so relate to your line of thoughts here. For me too, its the mental peace which is at the very top of essential things that I need to begin and end my day with. However, because it is so crucial, I sometimes feel I give it way too much importance and it ends up being the casualty as well, especially when life takes over and people, events and circumstances pose a threat to my peaceful state. For the past few years, I’m trying to meditate more often and especially on those days when I feel I’m not at peace. It usually helps, but not always. One just has to get on with it, eventually.

What do you think? Please share! :)
