My Gratefulness for 30 days of #MyfriendAlexa : #Gratitude #LetusKISS

Starting September 1 , I am taking part in the BIG blogging campaign #MyfriendAlexa and I have been writing my posts under the theme #LetusKISS . KISS is an acronym for Keep it Simple and Significant and I express  my  gratefulness to God who made  me choose this as my theme  I have shared my mind and heart on keeping our Life as simple + significant , and stop unnecessarily making  it Complex . Let us focus more on the aspects which make Life significant , memorable and  appreciable .

My Gratitude for Pains and Pleasures 

Let us divert our focus from mere collection of  Things to collection of Moments . Let’s live our Life with Mindfulness rather than our minds always full of worries . Let us follow the path which leads to calmness , happiness , cheerfulness. To achieve a special kind of Fullness in life ,  Gratefulness also plays a major part . Gratefulness is magnification of the positive happenings in our life . If we can inculcate  a habbit of being grateful in all the times , then  even  the not-so-happy moments have been proven to hurt us less . Gratefulness is focussing on the positive side of Life , looking at the half  glass full rather than the half empty one .

    Reading your gratitude post took me to 4 self-care mantras and yes, they made me smile especially the “Better you go mad”. Gratitude helped me a lot in shifting my attitude. Monika, did you try my App Gratitude Pie? If not, please do once. However, some UI improvements are on the way. I am sure you will love it-
