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?
