start monday with gratitude

articles & blogposts

“You're never going to feel bad about your whole life if you loved people and you were curious.” ~ Hank Green, vlogger, science communicator, entrepreneur, author, internet producer, and musician.

I think we can conclude that the list of descriptive titles after Hank Green's name gives the impression that he's curious about a lot in life and has his fingers in a lot of pies. Whilst it's not necessary to have your fingers in a lot of pies, it is good to always remain curious, to always ask questions, to always seek understanding and knowledge.

And that's exactly what this section is about. It's about understanding gratitude and the benefit of creating a gratitude practice... and anything that may be of interest within the subject of gratitude. "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." ~ Albert Einstein.

All the articles and blogposts I create throughout this coming year of gratitude shall be shared as they're written in our weekly email. And the collection shall also be shared on this page too.
