Today…

I am grateful for time

I am grateful for the sense of order and passage that TIME gives to me.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” ~ Albert Einstein

Today…

I am grateful that I have the ability to change, create change and to be an agent of change… all in my life.

Our first impressions are generated by our experiences and our environment, which means that we can change our first impressions . . . by changing the experiences that comprise those impressions.” ― Malcolm Gladwell

Today…

I am grateful to be on a break and to be back from the break.

I am grateful for the calming and rejuvenating effect that nature has on me.

I am grateful for the trip through memory that nature and being by a woodland lake has gifted me with.

I am grateful for the WORK of BEES and the buzz of the wings.

I am grateful for every morsel of life that can be gathered into my being.

Today…

I am grateful for the crazy,wild and abundant thoughts that stream through my head.

I am grateful for the peaceful, soothing and rich thoughts that stream through my head.

I am grateful for my mind which cultivates that which dwells in my heart.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Today…

I am grateful for the passions in my life

  • Passion allows for me to be fervid in my devotions
  • Passion awakens my curiousity
  • Passion allows me to balance
  • Passion enlivens my life sense

I enjoy the vivid quality that passion brings to my life.

Without Passion in my life I have little vitality.

I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” ― Albert Einstein

Today…

My gratitude extends to the darkness.

  • Without the darkness I would no be able to see the light.
  • Without my looking at that which I do not want I would not be able to create that which I so desire.
  • Without my experiencing the pain I would not be able to experience the bliss.
  • Without imprisonment I would never be able to experience the ecstatic quality of freedom.

 

“I have to keep facing the darkness. If I stand tall and face the thing I fear, I have a chance to conquer it. If I just keep dodging and hiding it will conquer me.”  ― Mary Pope Osborne
