Gratitude: The Quiet Friend

Gratitude: The Quiet Friend

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.


Idea 💡

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." — Melody Beattie

Reflection 🤔

Gratitude is a quiet friend waiting to remind you of a few simple truths: You are enough, this moment is enough, and everything isn’t as scary as it seems.

Gratitude is humble. It’s easy to miss it and only notice the latest and loudest emotions. It refuses to fight noise with more noise.

Once you notice it, the volume begins to turn down. You can smile again, and begin to see that everything is going to be okay.

Action ✅

Find as many moments of gratitude as you can this week.
