Life is a series of many events and experiences, some of which are draining and exhausting. In this 21st century, it is easy to be carried along with the rhythm of life and forget to focus on the tiny important details of life. For this reason, many people simply exist instead of living life. One of the tiny details we miss in life is cultivating a heart of gratitude.
Gratitude is a feeling of joy and thanksgiving that comes when we focus on everything that has happened in our lives and appreciates how it has shaped us. Cultivating gratitude takes pausing, noticing everything that is happening at the moment, and appreciating it all. When you pause and reflect on your life – all that it has been- you find that there is so much to be grateful for, whether it is the beautiful sun rays after a long rainy night or the simple gift of mercies that our God bestows on us every morning.
