Touchstone – The Heart of Gratitude

20 November 2015

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

Heart of Gratitude

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.

  1. Hvis du får en trygg vurdert for papir, og plassere en ekstern harddisk
    med alle digitale familie bilde i det, kan du være i for en skuffelse
    hvis brann gjør streik.
