I'm grateful to wake slowly this morning to peaceful music. I'm grateful that even though I woke from dreaming well before what I wanted to I could still enjoy the peaceful calm of the morning listening to calming music. I'm grateful for Karl Anthony's "In My Awakening" that soothes me and reminds me to let go of whatever is weighing on my mind. I'm grateful for phrases like "om shanti" or the english equivalent, "peace be with you". It is such a simple yet powerful blessing. I'm grateful for all the loving people in my life. I'm grateful for all the musicians and poets that find the words to speak directly to our hearts. I'm grateful for this peaceful feeling this morning. What gives you the feeling of peace and stillness? How can you reclaim that feeling throughout the day?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
