Gratitude. Georg Simmel calls it “the moral memory of mankind.” Gratitude feels good. It frees us from moments that try to put us in a muddle. It expresses joy from the inside out. It pays attention. It is a honeybee of movement and purpose and sweetness. It feeds hope. It places a necklace of sweet violets around our hearts. It is fun. It is the stuffing inside our childhood teddy bear. It kicks butt on gloom and doom. It elevates our awareness of happiness. It deals our cosmic poker hand aces. It laughs at the absurd and opens itself to the unlikely. It is a lot of things that just plain feel good. It is inspiring and edifying. How great it is to feel gratitude.
“Why gratitude?” Indeed. What a great question. The words of wisdom in this image are so beautiful. Universe. Mindfulness. Everyday. Precious Jewel. Joy. Recognize. Thankful. Harvest. Alive. Moments. Hearts. Conscious. Treasure.
Just reading these words makes me feel good. And feeling these words is a true gift. Makes me want to get up and dance. Pet the dog. Appreciate the clean, running water from the tap. Feel the love of my family. Enjoy a good belly laugh to the point of snorting. So many things. For all of them, I feel gratitude.
Please, take a few moments to enjoy this brief and very beautiful and inspiring and touching and elevating piece on gratitude below. I try to watch it at least once a week. Moreso if my mojo seems to have stopped working unexpectedly. It is my hope that you have a very beautiful day filled with appreciation and gratitude.
Why gratitude? “. . . it could be beautiful.”
