I'm grateful for the contrast that clouds bring to the sky. I'm grateful how the shadows dance on the ground and add more depth and character to an already beautiful view! I'm grateful for the calmness they inspire in me as I watch them drifting with the wind. Yesterday I was experiencing the contrasts within myself. I was watching shadows pass and temporarily dim my usually bright light and I was feeling a little judgement towards myself for that dimness. But as I sat and observed my clouds, these aspects of myself, I realized it is no different than the clouds outside. They do not extinguish my light; the light is always there. They add contrast and character so I can fully explore my world and grow into new understandings. I'm grateful to have this new understanding. I'm grateful to learn so much about myself through my observations of my world. I'm grateful to be a reflection of the beauty I see around me. How does nature reflect you? How
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
