Gratitude is…the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Sometime ago, I cant remember when, I set an alarm on my phone, the alarm goes off everyday at 9.20pm (No real significance in timing).
If I’m out, people will ask what the alarm signifies, after my explanation, I’ll say ”So, what are you grateful for today?”. Often, the automatic answers are ”I don’t know” or ”Nothing” or ”I can’t think of anything”.
When we think about gratitude, we usually think about the big things for e.g. Lack of wealth, property or a nice car but what about being grateful for the small things i.e. Good eye sight, the ability to walk, talk, touch another person.
I realised the importance of this earlier this year and I really didn’t want to ever forget the reasons for why I am so fortunate despite the up’s and downs that may come along the way, hence the Gratitude Alarm!
So tell me, what are you grateful for today?
