I'm grateful to wake to the sun's attempts to rise and shine just before the clouds moved in. I'm grateful to see a glimpse of it before the storms arrive. I'm grateful for the way the other colors deepen with the clouds, unwashed by the sun. I'm grateful to enjoy the calm energy of nature with an extra long morning meditation. I'm grateful to build my day around this calm. Each thought and each external perception I allow today will create this day and the world I see. Each song I choose to listen to and each emotion I allow to arise with the music with shape my overall feeling of the day. Each word I speak, positive or negative, will shift my world in that direction slightly until at the end of the day my world is built by my own perspective. Today I choose to create a world of peaceful happiness. I choose to create a world that is gentle yet playful. I choose to listen to songs that evoke positive emotions. This is the world I choose to see today and I'm grateful to create that perspective for myself. What will you choose to see, think, and listen to today? What perspective will you create? I'm so grateful for the peaceful happiness of waking slowly. I'm so grateful for dog snuggles. I'm so grateful to know I will be cared for today in loving and positive ways. And I'm grateful for the cleansing and nourishing power of the rain to wash out the old, bringing in the new. May your day be blessed with a peaceful persp
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
