Gratitude

Granted

It’s so easy to take everything that is already working for granted

your paved roads

your supermarkets filled with fresh fruits and exotic foods from all over the globe neatly packed and stocked for your choosing

vehicles

phones

entertainment

booze

art

got a head ache? No problem, here’s an advil for you if you want

here’s your spiced moccha latte prepared for you in minutes

Too hot? Here – press this button on the AC unit to cool yourself off

music and information on the palm of your hands

Maps, connection to others with this very device you’re using to read these words

want to see another part of the world? Gotchu — here’s this incredible flying machine that will take you anywhere on the planet IN THE AIR

LOL how wonderful of a world this is

is there room for improvement? Yes – we are still in process of evolution and co-creation and together we can work out the kinks and improve the planet for all beings

but while we are on the journey can you at least for a fucking second give thanks and appreciate how far we’ve come and all that is already fucking working???

be grateful and stop complaining about every little thing

and if something needs fixing, why don’t you take some action to help fix it? This is your home too — we can all pitch in to make it better

Don’t take the progress we’ve made for granted

appreciate what we have

and let’s work together to make the necessary adjustments

Gratitude

After standing on my feet for several hours, I began to notice how wonderful my feet really are. I began to notice how gracefully they support me all day no matter where I go.

I started to thank life for my feet. I began to see how I take so many things for granted. There are times where I focus so much on what I am lacking in my life and forget all the blessings that I already have.

Having a sense of gratitude is so important to our wellbeing. Thankfulness allows us to see the good that we already have and refocuses our attention on the beauty that is currently present. There is nothing wrong with wanting more from life, but it is crucial that we remember what we already have.

I started a gratitude journal. I recommend it. Even if you don’t write in it every day, take some time throughout the week to focus on what you are grateful for in your life. It could be the smallest of things, like the wind blowing in your hair. It could be the sunrise. It could be your coffee or tea. Anything that brings you joy; anything that serves you. You can even be bold enough to be thankful for the challenges that have strengthened you and opened your eyes to new knowing. Whatever it is for you, give thanks. There is always, always, always, something to be grateful for.

I am thankful in this moment.
Thank you, feet for supporting me and taking me from place to place.
Thank you, brain for being the source of my functions.
Thank you, hands for making this post possible.
Thank you, lungs for allowing me to breathe this air.
Thank you, bed for allowing me a comfortable place to rest.
Thank you, weather for being so pleasant today.
Thank you.
