I’ve often wondered . . . How do you grow what you treasure? Be it knowledge, happiness or success . . .
The answer has always been quite straightforward, but a tricky one to recognize and implement in life.
It is infact a three pronged approach comprising of the below elements:
- Internal reflection
Setting aside some “QUIET TIME” to sit down with oneself, pause, reflect and listen to our inner chatter from an outsider’s perspective – this introspection exercise often leads us to find some of the most complicated answers we have been seeking from the outside world, inside ourselves.
You do not get what you want, you attract what you are. Gratitude is truly the parent of all other virtues. Being thankful, appreciative and recognizing the blessings in our lives fill our daily lives with joy, peace and contentment. It shifts our focus from what is lacking, to the already existing abundance in our lives.
When we give to others, what we have; what we share, comes back to us manifold. Sharing experiences, uplifting words of affirmation, knowledge, inspiration, belief in others, wealth and resources and above all – the gift of time; all these when selflessly given to another, enrich not just the receiver, but also add so much more fulfilment to the giver.
*Edit: Thank you, Erika Kind for adding this beautiful nugget. Below are the golden words from Erika: *
In being aware that we never know it all, we treasure what we already know but at the same time, we keep mind and heart an open vessel to welcome inspiration and inputs that lead us even further.
I hope you find joy and serenity in the above 4 jewels!
Much love xx ❤
