I'm grateful for the world I live in. I'm grateful to see everything around me as a reflection of myself. I'm learning that each time I feel apart from the group or from the situation it is because I am choosing to see myself as separate. And that is not necessarily how others see it. We are all individuals with our own perspectives and in honoring that we take our place. It is when I don't honor that that I feel a discord and a feeling like I do not belong. I'm also grateful to see everyone around me as my reflection. When I talk to three people in one day that seem to push my buttons on the same topic I see that as an aspect of myself wanting me to look into that subject. Does this mean I agree with their opinions? Not necessarily, but it does require me to open my mind to others' views long enough to reevaluate what I do truly believe. The best thing I can do for myself is to be open enough to change any beliefs that no longer make sense to me. It is in that allowance that I can expand my understanding. I am here to play many roles and explore many outlets. I'm here to be an example and sometimes that example is showing people not HOW to do things, not in how NOT to do things but just in showing a way things CAN be done. I am by no means a master at life. But I am grateful to have learned the lessons I learned so far, to share those, and to be open to hear the lessons that others present to me as well. When we are ourselves, we fit into our true place. So who are you today? What message do you want to share? What role do you want to play? And are you willing to change mid game if something else fits better? I'm grateful to share this world with so many interesting, amazing people! Namaste
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
