I'm grateful for the rainbow of colors coming through the room as the sun passes over the beveled glass. I'm grateful to have these colors lighting myself and my surroundings in such a magical way. All of us, at one time or another, have had our heart crack from a relationship gone awry or a loved one passing. It does not feel good in those moments and yet there is always more love pouring in. Each instance carves our heart to be uniquely our own and it is those very carvings and cracks that give us even more beauty. It is like a window. When the sun shines on a regular glass window the light just passes through it. But if there is a bevel, a crack, or any other shape to the glass, suddenly that light is refracted into a beautiful rainbow of colors. I believe the same is true for the heart. Each situation shapes out heart allowing it to beam the light in even more beautiful ways. I'm grateful for this. I'm grateful to be working through some old fears and seeing the beauty that was hidden beneath. I'm grateful to strive to fly as if I had never fallen, love like I had never been hurt, and shine my light on the world as a colorful rainbow instead of a beam. What old pains are you holding on to today? Are you willing to see them as a gift to release so your own rainbow can shine through?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
