Look around. I invite you to consider gratitude today.
It could be as simple as asking ourselves: What are we most grateful for?
Most of the time, we are quick to think of the obvious things… my own health or family.
Or perhaps our ability to work and the opportunity to have a consistent place to live.
Consider a moment, a person, a situation from today that proved especially difficult or disengaging for you.
Can you be grateful for that moment, that person, or that situation?
Now, with that difficult moment in mind, what can you be most grateful for?
The following is taken from an online resource called Spirituality and Practice:
“…Learn the grammar of gratitude, practice saying ‘thank you’ for happy and
challenging experiences, for people, animals, things, art, memories, dreams.
Count your blessings. Utter blessings, and express your appreciation to
everything and everyone you encounter. By blessing, we are blessed.”
So now I invite you to silently say thank you to all who support you
Say thank you to those who may make your commute longer
or make your wait in line double.
May your ability to count your blessings and find gratitude,
even in challenging moments,
be a source of strength to you.
