Gratitude: what are you thankful for today
Learning to express gratitude and be grateful on a daily basis is one of the first and longest lasting skills I have learned to make my life better over time. It doesn’t have to be anything big or important. It can be for a cup of coffee, the blue sky, bird song, whatever.
I remember when I first began this practice some 40 years ago, that it felt contrived and on the inside I didn’t really feel grateful. But with time, it became more a part of me, of who I am. There have been many lapses in practice over the years, but I always come back to it.
Today I am grateful for the blooming climbing asters cascading over the drive. And of course for finding so many missed friends here.
