“Sometimes, we forget to appreciate the simple things in life. The experience of singing, laughing, or dancing with joy; of being in love; of connecting or sharing with others; of inspiration, a sense of productivity, expansiveness; the emotion we feel when we play or hear beautiful music, when we look at artwork – all of these exemplify Light.
Gratitude keeps us from taking the blessings in our life for granted and prevents us from falling into a passive reactive state.
Where are the blessings in your life?
Appreciation doesn’t just connect us with fulfillment. Appreciation is fulfillment.” -Yehuda Berg
I love this because it illustrates why I originally felt the need to “go minimalist.” I wanted to eliminate the clutter so that I could always see the real joy in life. What a great reminder to appreciate, say thank you, and simply enjoy.
