The Simplest Gratitude Practice

It has been some time since I kept a gratitude journal, and here’s a very simple gratitude practice we can adopt at each day’s end. Simply write down one thing…the best part of the day…upon a calendar near the bed.

Just think what a blessing it will be at the end of the year to reflect back upon 365 glorious gifts!

It may seem like a small thing, but I am so grateful for coconut oil which I have been incorporating into my fall baking. It is a fat I can tolerate and makes it possible for me to enjoy a variety of deliciousness.

I’m so grateful for the trees surrounding our property which are home to the wild creatures I call my pets. Every day I’m at home I get to enjoy the sound of squirrels prancing on our rooftop. From the windows, I watch them chase each other or feverishly bury black walnuts. What a mess they make with these walnuts on our patio! I’m grateful for the mess, and it never ceases to make me smile.

The Art of Gratitude

“Gratitude is good for you. Taking a moment to give thanks can improve your digestion, mental health, and even your emotional health. It doesn’t just make things “feel” better, it actually makes them get better.” -Ocean Robbins

A Life Devoted to Peace & Gratitude

If you have not seen this (Thich Nhat Hanh was 85 at the time), it is well worth your time. Since this amazing soul can no longer speak as a result of a stroke not long after this meeting, I’m so grateful to have access to this amazing teaching.

    Michele I was looking forward to sitting down and catching up on your blog and this post was so delightful. I really liked seeing glimpses of your home and yard in the full glory of Fall. What a great idea. It’s so personal, I felt like I was right there with you. The beautiful quotes were such a nice backdrop for these photos too. I showed Jim the video of Thich Nhat Hanh with Oprah. That’s one of his favorite interviews of him, I think Jim discovered Thick Nhat Hanh in his late twenties, and it’s me that was late to the Eastern spirituality world. I’m so sad about him being unable to speak after his stroke. When Jim told me that it really affected me, I don’t know why that seems so unfair to me. He has given so much to so many. But what do I know? I also have to tell you how charmed I was by your video! Who took your video? What a doll you are, I only wish I could hear you talking.
    Maybe one day I will when we meet in person. In the meantime thank you Michele for gracing me with your visits to my blog. Honestly, I read your words and I think, if only I could see myself the way you do. Most of the time I feel so broken. Please know how much your words mean, simply because they’re coming from you. My dear wise friend. Sending you love across this screen.

      Always so happy to hear from you, Leslie. When I watch TNH at age 85 in that interview, I have to keep reminding myself he is not a boy…I have never seen an adult embody a childlike wonder and disposition as this teacher of love! The whole time I am thinking, what a miracle to be so enlightened as to become a timeless, ageless, vessel for mercy and wisdom to flow in and out. I feel like Oprah is also radiant and plugged into the same wonderment…her heart open and permeable to this teacher’s glory. I need a new video – hahahaha. That was a friend helping me out, and there was a 3 minute version of him interviewing me that I deleted because it opened me up to bullies, trolls, and extortionists on the internet. I mean, I sang an exerpt of a Justin Bieber song in that version…cray cray and just being silly and real. I blew it up with 2/3 of my blog more than a year ago to lessen the vulnerability. Things were easier online in 2010. 🙂 I think when we feel broken (and I mostly do) it is because we are…but maybe we’re being broken into love…into a more fluid state to flow. It’s the weak becoming strong, the poor in spirit becoming blessed, the holy paradox and mystery glowing in all the reflective shards. Thank you for the love. For your courage and light ever finding its way into my world and enriching it. You’re so lovely.

    So beautiful around your home at this time of year…all the colors ablaze! I did the same thing recently around the property we live on, and it is amazing all the blessings there are to take in from a leisurely walk in nature noticing all the details and changes from one season to the next. God’s creation is truly amazing. Love the gratitude quotes throughout…all so powerful and true! Thanks for your example of gratitude and enjoying the simple pleasure of life all around us! Your posts are always such a treat to read and always full of so many golden nuggets of wisdom, creativity, inspiration, and hope that we all yearn for and need. Thanks for all you put into each post.
