Our lives are just how we perceive them. If I choose to perceive my life as joyous and perfect then it is and if, living the same life, I choose to perceive it as unsatisfying... it is. I'm grateful that perception plays such a large role in my life. I'm grateful to believe that things are not good or bad until we label them that way. I'm grateful to know that I am the determining factor in what my life looks like. And I'm grateful to know that even when I am fully happy, I can ask for every wish to be fulfilled. As I look around my world there are always reminders of the reverence of asking spirit for our heart's desires. In the picture today some people may see only a rock. I see hands in prayer. Perception. I'm grateful to perceive the beauty in my world and to ask for the things I want to see, knowing that that change starts in me. What will you ask for today? What do you see in your world?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
