What greater investment in life is beyond gratitude? The more gratitude one banks, the more agile our resiliency will be.
Gratitude is medicine by itself. Gratitude can aid us to open our eyes a little wider.
When we’re grateful, we are most likely to be present with the gifts inherent to us all. Like drinking in the warmth of the sun, sensing the good earth beneath our feet, or simply following the breath deeply in and slowly out until stored tension in our bodies fall away.I am grateful to the forests that sustain so much life, fauna and flora, four legged and winged ones for sharing this good earth.
I am grateful for the wisdom keepers and ancestors who have paved paths before us, and thankful for open and curious minds.
I bow to the farmers who tirelessly turn and till the soil to grow the foods that sustain us,
I pray for the elements that support them, And give thanks for the cooks that enthusiastically explore ways to bring joy to the senses.
I ooze with gratitude for those who hear our laughters and our cries,
Push us past our fears and lift our spirits,
Clean up the wounds of our falls,
Toast our feats,
And awaken our purpose.
I am grateful for my many mistakes, past, present and future,
grateful for the comforts that take us out of danger
And the discomforts that keep us awake.
For all of this, I remain..
