It's been about a year since I discovered the slow living movement. And practicing gratitude has been a part of my life since a few years before that.

I've been thinking a lot about these two concepts lately: what they stand for, how they're very much intertwined + what living slowly and gratefully really is about and what it means to me.

Here’s what I've come up with so far (mind you, this is very much a work-in-progress!):

  • It’s realizing that the stuff we do when we aren’t *doing* is the stuff that really matters

  • It's appreciating that the smallest of moments mean everything and nothing at the same time.

  • It’s being present in the smallest of moments, the mundane things you usually take for granted

  • It’s accepting that life is short + our moments are speedily ticking by

  • It’s accepting the daily hardships of life and, at the same time, keeping an eye out for that silver lining

  • It’s finding what you were meant to learn from the mess + use it to help you reach the other side and be a better person

  • It's taking every single thing that happens to you + knowing that you can either benefit, grow or learn from it
