Daily Gratitude - Moments of Connection

Let's take a moment to appreciate the things that have been happening in your life recently. Today's theme is appreciating moments of connection. As always, if you would like to journal along, you can pause after each prompt to give yourself more time to write and reflect. First, let's take a deep breath in. And out.

In times of loneliness, busyness, or isolation, it can be difficult to feel truly connected to others. We can go through our days without really noticing those around us. When we take time to pay attention to the ways we can foster and receive connection, we expand our awareness of those around us, while also opening ourselves to experiencing a deeper sense of belonging. Think of an interaction today where you felt seen, appreciated, or cared for. It could have been with someone you know well, with a coworker or even with a complete stranger.

It could be simple, a genuine shared smile, a thoughtful gesture, or a kind word. Even if it was very brief, take some time to think about what was happening and replay the moment in your mind. What was going on right before? What made the moment possible and how it influenced your day? What did it feel like to share a moment of human connection like this? What felt significant about it to you? What would it be like to be the initiator of moments of brief connection like this? Now with this in mind, repeat the following phrases: Thank you for this moment of feeling seen. Thank you for the person who chose to care for me in this simple way. Thank you for all the ways in which we belong to each other.

Thank you for the invitation to show others that they belong too. To end this session, let's take a deep breath in. And out. We'll see you back here tomorrow for another gratitude practice.
