I’m on the train into Waterloo feeling almost paralysed by an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I’ve written before about gratitude and the powerful psychological effects it can have, but I’m not quite sure what’s induced such strong feelings this morning. All I know is that despite the doom and gloom that seems to pervade the world most of the time, we generally have a lot to be grateful for. A warm shower. Cups of tea. Cereal. An outfit that makes us smile when we slip it on. Lashings of bright lipstick. An unexpected lift to the station. The luck of walking straight onto a train. Sunshine. Allotments. The list could go on and it’s only 11.01.
