Let’s continue our practicing gratitude and try out another excercise 🙏. Task for today is feeling (and showing) gratitude towards others 🤩. How can you do it?
➡️ 1. Notice, appreciate and thank others (close ones, coworkers etc) for every little (and easy to miss) gestures coming from them 🙏. Bring your attention to everything that you get from them: attention, support, help 🤝. Short conversation 💬, making a tea when you feel sick 😪, helping in solving a problem, a text showing that somebody thinks of you in a difficult moment….
When you concentrate on noticing and appreciating those details, you’ll see that you have plenty more reasons to feel grateful that you’ve thought before 🤩
➡️ 2. Notice, appreciate and thank strangers who you meet along your way e.g. as a customer. It can be a mindful waiter 😊, friendly saleswoman 🤗, a clerk with a smile on his face 😁, bus driver that waits for you to get in before he drives away 🚃… Notice those specific things that others do for you and feel grateful 😍
Do you notice those little deeds from others in your everyday life? 🤔 I sure do and I’m always grateful for every little help or support I get from others but on the other hand I feel sad/disappointed when others do not notice/appreciate what I do for them and take it for granted 💔
Do you feel the same way?

Stop living in a bubble! 😉 Stop daydreaming, stop comparing yourself and start appreciating what you’ve got! 🤩
You know what word should be deleted from a dictionary and be banned forever? 🚫 ‘Perfect’. 🙄
Nothing is perfect, no one is perfect and will never be 😏
We tend to compare our lives with some unrealistic scenarios 💁🏼♀️. We tend to compare ourselves with unreal people (yes, that famous model in your magazine isn’t real because in real world she doesn’t look like she’s presented in the photo 🙄). It’s as if we were comparing our life to a Disney movie! 🤦🏼♀️
All people have ups and downs. All people have their worse moments. All couples fight. All families have their own problems. ⚠️
Believe me, even if someone seems perfect to you, I am more than SURE that he/she isn’t, that he/she is struggling with something, that he/she has their own problems 🤷🏼♀️
And hey! Maybe there’s a person that thinks of you as perfect? 😉 Beucase maybe on the outside you seem to have it all? 💁🏼♀️
You’ll always have something that somebody else doesn’t and at the same time you’ll always lack something that some other people have ⚠️. That’s just the way it is and we need to stop chasing after unreal goals 🚫
Nobody has it all.
Now just stop and look what you have. Cherish it. Appreciate it. 🙏
What do you think? Do you agree?
It’s Boxing Day!
Key to happiness is appreciating what you have. Lower your expectations. This is what i keep saying: “I prefer to expect less to be happily surprised than to expect more and be disappointed”. Try it! It’s better to be happily surprised than disappointed. Works with presents too 😉
Cherish what you got 🙏
