How to Live a Good Life: A Recipe for Compassion and Meaning

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you've probably heard me mention Jonathan Fields. He's been a good friend of many years and we've been part of many events together, from speaking at SXSW in Austin to all six (!) WDS's from 2011-2016 in Portland.

Living With Gratitude in a Modern Age

2744476573_a76a733802_z Jonathan Fields is one of the most generous people I know. He is always helping me and many others. I try to help him in return but the ratio is at least 4:1 in his favor.

In this post he explains something he’s done for a while:

While I do have a standard sig-file that gets added to my emails automatically, I type the words “With gratitude” by hand. Slowly, with intention, owning a sense of genuine gratitude as I type. In doing so, it becomes a mini-meditation. A momentary honoring. An opportunity to acknowledge gratitude dozens of times each day. And, strangely enough, when I do this, it makes me feel different. I know, weird.

It doesn’t take a lot of time, but it does take conscious time.
