A few weeks back I was walking home with my daughter from her art class. The sun was shining beautifully and she grabbed my hand. She then kissed me on the arm and said, "I love you Mommy". I was overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude in that moment. It felt perfect.
I wanted to pull out my journal and write for hours about it, but my schedule did not have the space in it at that moment, so I grabbed my smart phone and recorded a voice memo with my thoughts about that moment. Since then, in moments where I need to refocus, a boost, or just a smile, I have been playing back that voice memo and have now coined it my 'gratitude podcast'.
I have decided that for me, right now, gratitude podcasts are the way to go. I can record them quickly and listen back any time. My phone is near me in most moments, making it easy.
Give it a try... what is your gratitude podcast about?
