Reading Reflection is a series consisting of 6 parts.
Use this piece of reflection to refresh your personal motivation from Organic Soul‘s “The Essence Of Gratitude” article:
“In the autumn months we reap the harvest of the soil and the soul. When we settle into a quieter and calmer season, we have the time and space to reflect upon the busy summer months and soak in the blessings of friends and family.”
“Embracing grateful action begins by the way we think about ourselves, alongside our accomplishments and our goals.
By realizing how others have helped us get where we are today, whether that be life-long support from family and friends, or mentors offering teachings along the way, we shift from a self-centered mindset to one that gives credit to those that have helped us. This will immediately turn our gaze toward that of gratitude and it is only natural to offer our thanks to others.”
Count Your Blessings
This November, allow moments from each day to shine light on the blessings in your life. Gratitude can fill you with a sense of fulfillment and abundance, so bring it in as much as you possible can.
Start a gratitude journal this month. Every day, write down just a few things for which you are grateful. Put a list of blessings in a place where you can see them, and you may even want to share them with others during the holidays this season.
“What are some ways we can express our gratitude on a daily basis? One strategy is to think about our five senses. We experience the world through sight, taste, smell, touch and sound.
These are also key parts of our interaction with others, and perfect ways to tap into gratitude—take someone on a walk to watch the sunset, make your favorite bread loaf recipe for your neighbor to savor, give your mom fresh and fragrant flowers, hold the hand of a person you love, share music or a favorite memory with a friend.”
