Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more… It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. ~ Melody Beattie
I am finding there are so many ways that gratitude can be a comfort and a strength. It can be a place of stability. It can provide a sense of connection. It can bring to mind kindness.
Practicing gratitude is a way of consciously opening the flow of awareness and energy toward the foundational, nourishing aspects of my life.
It is a way of getting in touch with my needs, and often discovering that they are being met in ways I can easily overlook.
It is discovering a deep appreciation for aspects of my life that I can otherwise take for granted because they seem ordinary.
Forgoing appreciating all these things now feels like missing out on a deep and profound wellspring of sweetness. A wellspring of joy that’s just waiting to be tapped in to, to be sipped and savored.
