Last week I mentioned I try to use Sunday to reflect on the week and lovely things.
I’m working through the On being Podcasts at the moment. The Brother Steindl-Rast episode from Jan 2016 has been the source of so much inspiration this week. Here is a quote from from that episode of the On Being podcast in January 2016.

My mission is to let my gratitude overflow, to dodge the trap of ‘I have reached this goal/dream – what’s next’
Gratitude in the moment, to life with a life overflowing with gratitude for everyone and everything in it.
