A Space to be Thankful
Saying ‘thank you’ is a pathway to happiness and wellbeing. Even science supports the idea that having a grateful attitude in every small and large aspect of your life can help reduce depression.
Hi, I am Alex Richmond and I am a former thankless ingrate. Like many of us, the universe was sending signals to me to change my self-destructive ways. I ignored each one. In hindsight, my massive wake-up call was the only way I would listen at the time. It was a hard way to learn the lesson of gratitude and self-care but the universe has her ways. I’ll tell you all about my big signal from the universe to begin looking after my health and wellbeing, right here on The Richmond Net (stay tuned for more blog posts). I’ll also write about the things I love that have helped me be my healthiest self.
Self-discovery, health, wellbeing, gratitude, and heart. Those are the pillars of the Richmond Net.
Here are some things I’m thankful for:
- Early Winter nights in bed snuggling Captain Ernie, my cat.
- Journaling my thoughts and poems to get closer to my true self.
- Growing organic fruit and vegetables and visits to the farmer’s market.
- Yoga on my paddleboard at Henley Beach.
- Waking early and sitting on the beach.
The universe speaks to me when I’m on the edge of the sea and the edge of the land at the edge of the day.
I’ll be here to guide you on your path to health and wellbeing. Without a solid foundation of gratitude, true health will always elude. The simple act of saying ‘thank you’, sheds light on all the positive things in our lives. This simple word, when used with intent, becomes an almighty powerhouse of wellbeing and health.
