Reflecting on a Decade of Gratitude

Major (Rtd) Dr Prebagaran Jayaraman

About 10 years ago, I embarked on a journey of gratitude journaling, a simple practice that has profoundly enriched my life.

My gratitude journal is filled with small joys I experience daily. I find joy in the smallest moments – enjoying delicious thosai from my wife Sita’s kitchen, admiring the vibrant sunflowers in my garden, or appreciating the serene sunset at Teluk Batik, a public beach near my house in Lumut.

Even the simple pleasure of an afternoon nap in my hammock, listening to the melodies of AR Rahman, finds a special place in my journal.

This morning, my heart was captivated by the enchanting beauty of Bruges, a picturesque city in Belgium, reminding me of the joy of exploring new horizons.

Reflecting on 2023, I am grateful to the Almighty, my family, friends, clients, students and the countless blessings bestowed upon me. These moments, big and small, are my source of joy.

I extend my heartfelt best wishes for a great new year to each of you. May this new year bring you endless moments of joy and success. Thank you!
