“Gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”Harvard Healthy Newsletter
Hi, everyone! This is my second day journal on gratitude.
Date : April 25, 2019
“Act with kindness, but do not expect gratitude.”Confucious
#1: What is one thing I am grateful for today and why.
I heard this morning that an old friend’s mother had passed away. He is one of my friends at junior school. It was about 24 years ago.
I am grateful that my parents are still alive and that I can support them. It is really a huge blessing, because the best thing you could expect as a parent is a chance to see your children grow, having a job, getting married – if they choose to, having babies, living a joyful life. That is a chance not all parents could have, and I am so grateful that my parents could still see all three of us having kids. Again, such a huge blessing! 🙂
#2: What I’m looking forward to today.
I am looking forward to look up more interesting videos on YouTube to share with my family. So far, food and music videos are our favourites, aside from cartoons! You know, kids love cartoons. 😉
#3: My happiest childhood memory.
When I was little, just like other kids, life is about play. Every single day is a chance to play games, to “explore” fun, so to speak.
I am grateful that I had such a freedom to use my time during this exploration period to have a lot of fun with my childhood friends. I played a lot, and since there was no digital game at that time yet, most games are team-based and physical, and so I got physical exercise I need too through the games.
That’s it for day 2, and I wish you the same blessings too.
Regards, Paul. 😉
