“Gratefulness and simple living go hand in hand. When we are grateful, we appreciate life’s free gifts: friendship and solitude; movement and rest; Nature’s bounty and her spare winter introversion; our own alternating sonata movements of joy, sorrow, and joy’s resurgence. Through this appreciation, we find contentment.”
The group is growing! Welcome to the Google Friends Group, Melanie! Thanks for joining!
And thanks to Wendy for passing along this quote!
Have you ever noticed that the simple things in life are so rich and fabulous? How wonderful is a simple walk on the beach? Or a trek on a trail through the woods? And how about spending time with old friends you have not seen in a while? One of my favorites – reading! There is so much joy in simple living.
As over-achieving humans, however, we try to complicate things and mess it all up! We do and we do, only to get burned out! Take a moment and breath in and out. Close your eyes and try to clear your thoughts for a moment. Experience the bliss!
I posted another good story about this over at: https://allaboutgratitude.com/2285/gratitude-for-the-simple-life/
I hope you enjoy it and get something from it.
