Got to explore the beautiful island of St. Lucia with my love yesterday. As we ventured between one pristine location to the next I asked Jenna how she was doing (and yes I sounded just like the typical New Yawkah “how you doin”). She replied, “I’m just grateful.” Perfect response to a perfect day. As common as it is to see it written in captions nowadays gratitude is truly an essential ingredient to happiness and I don’t think there is ever enough of it. I struggle with anxiety and doubt almost on a daily basis. It comes in waves. Even in paradise, even alongside my true love, even with my health, and the luxury of streaming the last episode of G.o.T. there is still a periodical feeling of … Whatever that feeling is I find action and a reminder of gratitude to be the remedy. Every time. It’s one of the few things in life you can’t have enough of. The mind is a tricky maze and sometimes your ego is trapped right in the middle of it. But you, the real you, not your ego but you are in control. Take steps to find your peace by taking action on your dreams and all of your ambitions, and throughout consistently remind yourself of one of the best most fruitful mindsets you can have… a sense of gratitude. The state of gratitude will lead you to a place of peace and love. Atleast it does for me… every time. And boy are there things to be grateful for in this beautiful world of ours. Peace and love.. may your day be full of both. ✌🏼+♥️ . . If you ever run out of things to be grateful for.. feel free to reach out and I’ll help. . “It’s not joy that makes us grateful, it’s gratitude that makes us joyful.” . #thanksforlistening #gratitude #peace #love #health
