Lessons learned along the way – gratitude booster

Each day I learn to be more grateful and keep a smile in my heart, no matter the season or circumstance.

God is good all the time, and we are all made with love.

It’s in our essence.

Lessons along the way:

Be a blessing to someone, whether they recognize and appreciate it or not. Shine a light wherever you go. Speak less, pray more. Words matter – be kind with them. Songs can sometimes hurt, yet Psalms will always heal. Patience isn’t popular; it’s essential.

Be open to learning; none of us knows everything. Intelligence has nothing to do with class or colour. Lend a helping hand whenever you can. Be the same at home and outdoors; consistency in character is key to countenance and clarity.

Joy is precious; when it is rooted in Jesus it cannot be stolen or snuffed out.

Listen; don’t judge. Be a voice for the poor. Forgiveness is often a daily lesson. Work with an attitude of love. Hate is destruction, and also very boring.

Compassion can bring a glow of hope to someone who was just about to give up.

Cherish good friends. Share the good news. Be tender hearted and gentle. Speak life. Remember, you are loved. Live like it. Be thankful.

I hope, pray, and aim to remember this along the way.

Hi, I'm Indra, blogging from Barbados. Here you’ll find content tips for the creative, refreshment reminders for everyday life, and beautiful nature views from around the island. Get ready to nurture your gifts and shape a thriving business that aligns with your wellness. I'm a writer, singer and blogger who now mostly works from home, balancing house & yard work with creative career tasks. On a quest to grow more grateful each day. As a teen I almost gave up on life; now as a woman saved by grace, I'm living joyfully with purpose, encouraging the overwhelmed and overworked. This blog was launched when I pressed pause of travelling and being busy on the road and moved to a farm in the countryside, where I started growing food, hiking and fishing. Now, I'm on the west writing, cooking, recording, and creating content daily. Thanks for joining the journey, and remember to follow 'Joy within' blog for firsthand updates on new posts.
