Day 20 of 30 Days of Tessism has gratitude in something that can’t always be seen.
Gratitude: Today I am grateful for what I don’t have. I guess that’s probably an odd thing to be grateful for but it’s quite liberating. Being grateful for that allows me to strive for things and let go of things that I don’t need. I find it freeing to be grateful for what I do have and what I do not have and how that shapes me in my journey.
No matter how much I amass materially, nothing is more important than the family and friends that I will have no matter what. I really don’t need much more. That makes me really consider anything I desire to see if it’s worth the effort. Does it symbolize something? Is it something I already have in another form? Do I really need it? I am grateful for conscious connection to the things that fill my life and freedom from the unnecessary.
