    Hi Li-ling, you have great messages to share 🙂 I like what you said in tip #3 “there would not be any rainbows without any rain”. Indeed it is true. In the same manner, shadows show up where there is light.

      Oh Evelyn, how true about the shadows and the light! I guess it really is learning to accept and revel in both. Thank you so much for visiting and commenting.

    Li-ling – yes, the joys in the smallest of things! Let’s celebrate getting to work on time, minimal traffic on the road, having a job, and other simple life pleasures. When we continue to see joy in small things, we begin to see joy in other aspects of our life. Then, even challenging problems and difficulties become joy. Gratitude is a practice – how are we going to get good at it? Doing more of it:)

    Gratitude has become so critical that it’s one of the regular daily habits that i do everyday. A morning dose of gratitude helps start the day off right.

    Vishnu! Hello! I love it – Practise practise practise. Agreed. Definitely the best way of getting good at something, especially something as important as Gratitude definitely deserves everyday practise 🙂

    My gratitude practise ends my day, but I can see how using it to start off your day is a great way forward too.

    Wonderful. I think #4 poses most people the greatest challenge. Which is hardest for you?

      Hello Diana! Thank you for commenting. I too believe that for most people, and for me too (!) embracing the unknown is probably one of the hardest things to do. I have slowly learnt to come to terms with this by practising mindfulness as often as I can. It somehow always brings me back to this moment and keeps my thoughts from running away too much. What about you? Which do you find hardest?
