Each cycle begins with a short snippet about the featured benefit of that cycle. This is the snippet for Cycle 8: Contentment.
It is easy to be grateful for what we have.
The harder question is how to be content with what we don't have. To say, "This is enough.” Being grateful for every aspect of our lives creates a pathway to contentment.
Joshua Becker at BecomingMinimalist.com says, “Gratitude provides proper understanding of our place in the world. Gratitude is the feeling and expression of thankfulness for the actions of others that are costly to them and beneficial to us.
“By definition, gratitude requires humility. It requires us to admit we have been the recipient of something we did not deserve. And it calls us to admit there are no entirely self-made men or women.
“Gratitude opens the door to contentment. It pushes our praise to those who rightly deserve it. It causes us to focus on the good things we already have regardless of our present circumstances. It improves our well-being in almost every regard. As a result, it is the surest pathway to contentment.”Gratitude Miracles, the 5-minute journal that could change everything! is available at amazon.com. Click Here.
