a month of gratitude

gratitude

My eyes are overwhelmed by the green all around me

Yet I know that soon it will fade into normality

Gratitude for me means to take a bit of this feeling

And putting it somewhere safe.

“The root of joy is gratefulness. We tend to misunderstand the link between joy and gratefulness. We notice that joyful people are grateful and suppose that they are grateful for their joy. But the reverse is true: their joy springs from gratefulness.” – Brother David Steindl-Rast*

Not long ago, I practised gratitude for several weeks with a good friend, sending each other whatsapp messages each evening. It was a simple process, slowly building up and changing my attitude over time. So powerful, that I wanted others to have the same experience! So when I spoke with a friend who had a similar experience, the idea was born – why not create a movement. Let’s practise gratitude together! In order to harvest the benefits, it’s necessary to stick to the practice for some time and since May is about to begin, the project is now called “May – a month of gratitude”. It’s simple:

During the month of May, ask yourself each evening “What am I grateful for today?”. Try to find three things. Some days this might seem difficult, some days you might find even more. Record your answers in any way you like: For yourself, e.g. in a journal. Teaming up and sharing it with each other. Or maybe even publicly on your blog 😉

I am looking forward to living this experience with you!

what to do with it

what_to_do_with_it

I often get upset when I see certain behaviors

only to realize shortly after that I am doing the exact same thing

as much as I hate those bitter moments of truth they are also great because I can start working on it

and sometimes I even find an answer

I’m just not sure what to do with it

how i stay sane

howtostaysaneI need to draw to keep my sanity. This thought has been around my head for quite a while. I love drawing. It helps me to focus. clear my mind. finish a thought and release it to fly around the world…

So when I read the caption of this blogpost by Brain Pickings: How to stay sane – I finally sat down and … you see the results.

What do you do?

seeing

ImageToday I had the rare chance to meet someone and catch a glimpse of their heart.

I was shocked by its vulnerability. So full of hope. So full of fear.
Just like mine.

If only we all had transparent bodies so we could see each others hearts more often.

Oh, the possibilities…
