    How does/can practicing gratitude keep you centered and motivated to work for a better world?

    I believe that when you practice gratitude it can really help open your eyes to show you what you have in your life to be thankful for. One of the things I wrote down was food because I am able to walk out into my kitchen and I can look through my fridge or cabinets to see if I have anything I want to eat. While in other parts of the world, people have to grow their own food in order to eat and they are struggling to grow food due to climate change. Personally for me, when I practice gratitude it motivates me to work for a better world because I know what I am thankful for and how I wouldn't want to either not have it or struggle without it like some people do. So with my example of food I think about how I am lucky I do not have to starve because I am not able to grow my own food due to climate change and that I would never want to experience that, so then I am motivated to help change things so there is more food security in the world. It is about understanding what you have and are lucky/thankful to have and wanting others to be able to experience that as well.
