It’s easy to think about things we can be grateful for, family and friends, our basic needs being met. But how hard is it for us to be grateful for growth opportunities that come from challenging times, an annoying person, a moment of disrespect. We wrote this guided meditation as a way of helping us hold both in our hands and viewing both as being worthy of gratefulness. This meditation does require you to write down some lists so it is best to have a journal or notebook for this exercise. If you’d rather make a mental list, that is okay too. We hope you enjoy this guided meditation on cultivating gratefulness in your everyday life.
