I'm grateful to wake before the sun today. I'm grateful for the peacefulness of the the darkness that helps me to meditate. I'm grateful for the chance to witness the sunrise and the beginning light of a new day! I'm grateful to practice the stillness that I felt in the meditation retreat as I work to incorporate that quiet into my everyday life. I'm grateful for pure water to drink and for the nourishment of the food I eat today. I'm grateful for each and every necessity being provided for today. I'm grateful for this and so much more. When was the last time you sat in the silence of darkness and just allowed yourself to be? When was the last time you cleared your mind of all the to do lists and just were? I'm so grateful for these moments.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
