Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude–
Claudia – Thank you, immensely, for generously awarding me the Liebster Award. Your touching blog Living on Borrowed Days is simply amazing and as a show of my humble gratitude, and because I don’t follow directions very well … This post is dedicated to you and your inspiring readers.
The sun is gently rising now and I’m standing at my desk, savoring the first sip of hot coffee in my fave Kahlua cup, and I’m moved by the gratitude I feel, this deep appreciation for all that I have and for all that is.
Finding the time for gratitude has not been easy for me this week. I’m commuting on bike more, a little tired and worn out, plus dealing with traffic really tests my nerves. I don’t feel much gratitude towards myself either, leaving my change of clothes for work today – at home, neatly folded on the back of the couch. Thinking about the events of the past week – I want to drown in self-pity, moaning and complaining.
Moments like these though, are the best times to seek out and surrender to – Gratitude.
The cool thing is Dear Reader(s), gratitude is not limited to my Friday morning sob story. Gratitude can be accessed by anyone, anywhere, anytime and all it takes is a single moment … Be well and have a beautiful weekend!
Beautiful. I was just thinking this morning that I want to work with my stepchildren on a greater awareness of gratitude
Its warming to hear your intention in regards to your step children 🙂
I hope you had an amazing weekend – Take care this morning!
Gratitude is always an awesome topic brother. Thanks for the reminder!
Have a great weekend my friend.
I hope you guys have an awesome Mother’s Day planned this Sunday! Which reminds me *stop* and pick a Mothers Day card on the ride home … Have a good one mate!
Good thoughts. And that picture gets me in a meditative mood. A grateful one, at that.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and continued support! My apologies for the late reply, let’s blame in on the beautiful Spring weather this time around 😉
You can be grateful your co-workers got to see you in your biking clothes and be inspired by your dedication to bike to work 🙂
Thanks for the awesome post, always great to be reminded of gratitude.
My Mom is gone and my son estranged, so I celebrate all Mother’s this weekend, even the ones in male bodies and those that never gave birth to anyone but themselves….all love and nurturing is valuable.
“….all love and nurturing is valuable.” Beautiful!!!
Oh my gosh! This far beats answering 11 silly questions; you are simply wonderful 🙂 Thank you! Have a wonderful weekend!
