Radical contentment

Radical contentment

“While expressing gratitude seems innocent enough, it is a revolutionary idea. In a consumer society, contentment is a radical proposition.” ~Robin Wall Kimmerer

It’s not easy to stay content with what we have when we are bombarded constantly with advertising trying to convince us that we need more. The practice of the gratitude is the path to sidestepping the continual search for more by re-focusing our attention on all of the good we already have.

How well do you live in contentment? What are you grateful for right now that can help increase that contentment? Let’s be radical together!

Gratefulness

Gratefulness

“Gratefulness helps us return to ourselves, restoring our equilibrium and helping us to see beyond what’s broken to the beauty and wholeness of life.” ~Tim Roberts

When we are hurting, it’s easy to become so focused on what’s causing us pain that we see nothing else. Gratefulness helps widen our view to remind us that there is more to life than just the pain we are facing. Rediscovering the beauty and wholeness that still exists can help us navigate our pain with greater ease.
