” . . . life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and . . . laughter is life’s sweetest creation.” — source unknown —
Gratitude. What is it? So many things and feelings and experiences. It is simply enormous. It is a whisper of a breeze. It is beauty. It is real. It is vapor. It is life. We all have our own unique way of experiencing gratitude and of returning it to others. Gratitude makes the world go around. It is a gift that creates a good day.
I have this quote hanging in my office on the wall near my computer: Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. I l-o-v-e this quote. It is another way of saying that cultivating gratitude matters. It is important to believe that something wonderful is about to happen. It feels so great to just give in to the belief and go with the flow.
This video by Louie Schwartzberg is so very very beautiful. I watch it when life feels absolutely fantastic and again when life feels as if it needs a reminder to look out, look up, look within. Believe. Celebrate. Embrace the incredible gift of today. Give to others. And give some more. Be happy. Cultivate mindfulness of the beauty that is all around. Smile. Laugh at the funny and at the absurd. And at myself. Live a life of gratitude and appreciation.
“Life. It’s given to you.”
