Want more happiness? Focus on gratitude.
David Steindl-Rast is a Catholic Benedictine Monk, who has divided his time between periods of hermit’s life and extensive lecture tours on five continents. Here’s one of his videos – watch it with earbuds or headphones if you can – and if you can’t see the video player, then click here to go to the video on YouTube
2018 is my year to focus on Gratitude/Thankfulness.
When I read and research the topic of Gratitude/Thankfulness, Br. David’s writings are referenced by most, including in Janice Kaplan’s book “The Gratitude Diaries”. Janice Kaplan took a year to focus on gratitude and I liked her book so much that I purchased a physical copy after renewing the library copy multiple times. I’ll be sharing more from her book on future #thankfulThursdays along with more from Br. David.
So, if you’re looking to be happier in life – focus on Gratitude.
“It is not happiness that makes us grateful. It’s gratefulness that makes us happy.
~ David Steindl-Rast
