It is not joy that makes us grateful;
It is gratitude that makes us joyful.

I smiled reading this question 😊. And indeed I do’nt know, but this is what I hope that my contribution is:
“What the world needs now is love sweet love”.
“This little light of mine, I’m gona let it shine”. 🗺️💛
My brain is cracking at this question. I do not understand the question. Usually an answer quickly pops into my head, and I share it with you. I can’t make the connection between understanding more and fear less. Fortunately, there are always many nice answers from you that are useful to me and that are meaningful. Thank you from my heart.💛
By being a caring friend 🤗💞💐.
My “inner compass” my conscience is sacred to me. I’m not exactly sure how that “preserve” works. I think it’s unconscious. I like to listen to it, and I trust it.
To be grateful is to be positive. Being positive is healthy. I’m no expert, but I once read that all kinds of good and healthy substances are released when you smile, are grateful, show affection, etc.
That a good night’s sleep is very important to me. I do a lot for it too. No alcohol, healthy food, no more TV screens in the evening, and no news reports in the evening either. Lying awake when you are in mourning is very bad and painful. I realy want to avoid that. In the morning, I wake up fit and grateful, and I have the feeling that I can handle anything.
Here is a piece of Mother Earth in my neighbourhood in the Netherlands. I would like to show it to you. Every year round this time the heather blooms beautiful purple. The photo was not taken by me.
Nothing received yet, but the day is still young. What I can do, is give you some…….. I wish you a nice day with love and light, fresh air, beauty to see and harmony to experience.
Love from Christine 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
For now, I am o.k., and at the end of the day I will be o.k. As always whatever happens.
The leaves of two large Canadian maple trees standing on the square in front of my house are turning in a beautiful red couleur.🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁
My piano, my comfort and savior.
The pile of books on the table; they will get me through the winter.
I must have done something wrong because I am a human being. But honestly, there comes nothing to mind. Mistakes are ok for me. I learn from them, can laugh about them, can forgive myself. I can say sorry. They also say that I was active with something.
Oh, yes I can feel that. But describe? It is almost impossible. Every morning I wake up with a grateful feeling because of the good sleep I had and because of the new day ahead. I feel my breath. Maybe I can describe it as “happy and healthy breathing”.
Your house looks like a home to me, Holly. 😍
I love to see them 🤗
You are so funny 😍
What a beautiful bird. You do not see these birds in the Netherlands. It’s a feast for my eyes.
Dear Mike, you’re welcome. I can really look forward to seeing the photos from your area.🤗
Thank you Anna. Some time ago in the daily questions someone said something about walking on the earth, as if your feet were kissing the earth. I thought that was so beautifully said. When I see nature like this, I want to walk that way. Mother Earth deserves so much respect.🤗
Hello Holly, Not far from my house, five minutes walk, is a beautiful forest. The Netherlands is a flat country, but luckily there are hills and search points in my neighborhood. Last week I passed a fallen tree that was covered with mushrooms.
Dear Butterfly, I really am so very happy that you found your hidden gem. A very important one. You can stay in your house thanks to her. Wonderful. Xxx from Christine
