Revisiting Gratitude

Been kind of down in the dumps lately… At the end of the day I’m left feeling tired and complaining. Mostly my complaint is that I don’t have fun any more.

So… What am I doing about it?

On Monday, I read these lines in ‘Notes from the Universe’ a delightful newsletter I subscribe to

“All that you need to have all that you want, Deepti, will be provided, as if by magic, once you know what you want and do something about it every day”

And today, Amulya, an intern who joined us, read my blog and came across my 7-day positivity experiment.. So I thought, why not revisit? Let me try this for another week and see what magic unfolds.. Here goes

Today I am grateful for

1. My family – I am so grateful to be part of my delightful family. These days I am so occupied with work that I barely spend any time with them, yet my parents always look out for my well-being. Lately, I have been able to observe that they have their own challenges but they have always, in their own way, kept my happiness as a priority. Thank you Mamma and Papa. I am also grateful for my little brother who’s the light of my life! I am grateful for the relationship we share πŸ™‚

2. The Notes from the Universe- This is the most awesome newsletter I’ve subscribed to. Speaks to the believer in me.. Thanks also to Kiran for recommending this to me πŸ™‚

3. My phone! I love my iPhone! So I started using the phone with a lot of reluctance.. But now I’m hooked! I am using it to blog right now and I find it amazing πŸ™‚

4. Yoga – I am so grateful have the opportunity to learn and practise Yoga. I am also grateful to my teachers Apoorva and Saras for being so incredible. I am glad that I have had the chance to learn and explore the Sutras through Apoorva, Saras and Raghu – each with their unique style of teaching. Thank you!

5. Mangoes! It’s almost the end of the season.. I am glad I have had the chance to experience a summer full of the most delicious mangoes. Thanks to Reshma aunty for sending Alphonsos from Pune and to various other friends and relatives in Hyderabad who have sent mangoes grown in their farms/ gardens.

That ends Day 1. More tomorrow.. πŸ™‚
