The other day I came home and saw my roommate writing something on a piece of paper.
That’s a strange sight to see out here in Silicon Valley where almost everything is digitized. I asked him what he was writing and he said something along the lines of “some silly daily motivational question thing.”
He was answering questions to things like:
What were 3 things that made today great?
What are you grateful for today?
What will make tomorrow great?
How can you make tomorrow even better?
The tables turned, and I got to answer the “silly” questions.
During the debriefing and even hours after, I felt more grateful. Forcing yourself to emphasize the good parts of life defines optimism.
Not so silly, huh? 😉
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world.
Now it’s your turn,Â What are you grateful for today?
