Jamshedi Navroze Mubarak – May We Grow In Gratitude!
Many of us underestimate the power of Gratitude – a simple ‘Thank-you’ goes a long way. Unfortunately, many do not realize just how empowering it is, be it on a personal level, shared between family members, friends and acquaintances, or even professionally.
Gratitude is readiness to express appreciation and the willingness to return the kindness we have received, to be conscious of the good things that happen to us and the pledge to never take these for granted. As a result, gratitude helps us connect with something larger than ourselves as individuals – attracting the universe’s positive energies to rejuvenate our existence with greater happiness, growth and success in all areas of life.
Speaking of rejuvenation, what could be more symbolic that Jamshedi Navroz, represented by the Spring Equinox – a time for renewal, recuperation and growth, even as the biting winters of the coronavirus pandemic hopefully retreat. Yes, the world has been grappling with devastation, disaster and heartbreak, but look around more carefully and you will find ample reason to be grateful, despite this catastrophe. And that is precisely why we chose ‘Gratitude, Healing and Recovery’ as the theme of this Jamshedi Navroz Special issue. We hope our features which are fashioned on this theme, will help shine a torch through these dark times and bring about a sense of cheer and hope.
History provides resounding proof that every battle ever won – on the field or off – had its success rooted in a strong, solid and strategic mental component. To win the battle that we wage with this pandemic, calls for similar reinforcements. In addition to the mandatory precautions, we need to strengthen our mindsets, where faith replaces fear. Embracing and practicing the art of gratitude will do that for you, making you refocus on your blessings.
As we welcome and celebrate Jamshedi Navroz, let us give thanks and embrace all the goodness and positivity that it promises!
Jamshedi Navroz Mubarak to all! May we grow in gratitude!
