Gratitude Practice Heals (Pages From the Diaries of Common Indian Women-Chapter7)

Sometimes when everything around me starts going hazy and I don’t know where to start, I sit in a peaceful place, like I am now in the jungle behind my house and just begin penning my gratitude list, so here I begin. 

I am grateful to the universe for: 

  1. The gift of writing which helps me express my deepest thoughts as musings and when I write my heart out I  feel more sane, more in control. Writing adds perspective to my thoughts and makes me ensure despite everything not going my way, I am on the right path. It teaches me to hold on for a while and practice patience and self-belief. Writing is my medium of expression, I write when I am happy, I write when I am sad and I write when there is a larger message I wish to give to the community based on what I have just learned. 
  2. For my life. I feel blessed to be born a human who has an intellect and can use it for his or her betterment and for the betterment of the world. However, I love flying and would love to be a bird in my next birth:)
  3. For my confidence that I keep sailing no matter what the circumstances are. Life keeps throwing lemons at me and I am addicted to making a lemonade out of them now. 
  4. For being able to get up every time I am depressed and sulking and breaking in tears at the drop of a hat. This phase surely is tough and lonely but somehow I stick to the bleak ray of hope and figure out little ways of staying afloat. 
  5. For my husband who has been a wonderful companion mostly and for my son who has my back always and listens to all my rants patiently. These two have always been my entire life. 
  6. For my friends who have been bestowed on me in abundance by my Sai and they know exactly when I need them. It is miraculous but it is now my superpower. 
  7. For a peaceful calm life driven by purpose where I manifest, I pray, I meditate, I do good and I try to smile. I have a thousand conversations with myself and am now a good friend of mine. 
  8. For the food on my plate and the roof above my head. Yes, I am grateful for it and pray the same for everyone on this earth. 
  9. For my brother who is the best gift my parents gave me. He is an innocent soul with whom I can share my heart whenever I feel like it. It is an absolute blessing to have a sibling and I am grateful for him. 
  10. For my Ayurvedic doctor who keeps me afloat with her medication. 

By the time I end my gratitude list, I start to feel better already because practicing gratitude heals. Thank you universe for all this and more you send my way every day.
