Start from a Place of Gratitude

Why would you seek to try another road, another person or another place, when you have learned the way the lesson starts, but do not yet perceive what it is for? ACIM


Are you always seeking something bigger, something bling-er, something shinier, something more grand,something somewhere else?

When does it end?

And how do we decide the difference between  growth and discontent?

On  the journey I have learnt that it is easy to be stuck in the discontent phase, always looking for something different, bigger, and neglecting where we are

It is a sure fire way to become bitter and twisted

Gratitude pulls me back

It says- here, right here where you are there is something to be thankful for

right here, give thanks

Something that simple takes me back to present and puts a smile on my face, and a totally different perspective in place

That is not to say that striving for growth ought to be abandoned

Oh hell no

It just says that starting from a point of gratitude is much more pleasant than from a place of not enoughness

because....not enoughness will mash you up

Peace
