Happy Diwali : Glow With Gratitude #everydaygratitude

Today is Diwali – the Indian festival of lights.  In some parts of India, Diwali is considered the start of a new year. Diwali is also a time to invite wealth and prosperity into your home. What better way to celebrate it than to glow with gratitude.

Glow With Gratitude

Gratitude places you in the energy field of plentitude. Glow with gratitude and see how awe and joy will make their home in you. – Michael Beckwith

When we think about gratitude and what we are grateful for, we often come up with standard responses – health, family, home, etc. These seem like things we should be grateful for. ‘Should’ is the operative word. It makes us feel like gratitude is a duty. But gratitude should be a joy – it should make us glow from within, not feel weighed down by guilt or duty.

Glow With Gratitude

Let’s look back at our day or week a little differently to feel the glow of gratitude. What if we thought of these?

  1. What made me smile today? Last week?
  2. Something that tasted delicious?
  3. What inspired me?
  4. Something that gave me satisfaction?
  5. What’s something unpleasant experience did I have?

When I look back on this week, I’m grateful for:

  1. Lots of laughter at home and work about silly things.
  2. Good food – I cooked some good meals this week, even if I say so myself. Not to forget some yummy Diwali mithai.
  3. Taking part in #TheMindfulBreak2017 hosted by Modern Gypsy  on Instagram. I was pleasantly surprised with the response to some of my pictures and a little chuffed because I had taken them. Even choosing the pictures helped me be mindful.
  4. Another unpleasant episode that helped me remember why I’ve disengaged from some toxic relationships.

Happy Diwali, dear readers. May you glow with gratitude all year through. What are you grateful for today?

    Love your thoughts for Diwali and to be grateful, dispel darkness and be tolerant of each other’s culture & food should matter to us. We should rise above every small thing and I have also stopped engaging from toxic people for it sucks the energy.

    I love your idea of feeling or rather acknowledging things we have to be grateful for. It is a practice we should all follow in order to get inner peace
