This Is Gratitude Day 1. What Is Important?
If we want to find gratitude in the world around us, we have to ask ourselves a fundamental question.
What is important in our lives?
In this money driven metric society that bombards us, let's stop for a moment and reframe the question.
If compassion were a currency, what or where would we spend our money?
This question provides a whole different way of looking at our lives. I would spend my compassion coin on my children. While I contain a universe full of gratitude for their two beautiful souls, I also lack compassion when it comes to things that require patience. For example, when I need to repeat myself twenty times, so shoes slip on and we get out the door on time. At that moment, I need to dig deep into my pocket and pull out my coin purse full of compassion currency. It will pay for an extra round of patience. Only then will I find true gratitude in the moment.
How will you spend your compassion currency today?
Until tomorrow friends.
