I am grateful for REAL life in all the imperfect and messy ways it shows up each day. I'm grateful for the experiences that help me understand myself on deeper level and understand the way this world works. I'm grateful to know that I can learn within any situation and gain a greater understanding. I'm grateful for small disagreements that lead to a closer connection and better understanding of those I care about. I'm grateful that life and love are not always fairy tales because I truly believe they are stronger and deeper in real life. I'm grateful for the "rocky" parts of life that remind me how grateful I am for the smooth parts. I am grateful to see the Love in all of it. And above all I am grateful for the amazing, loving people that are on this journey through real life with me. What are you grateful for in real life? Do you find gratitude in even the tougher aspects and issues that show up or do you prefer the promises of fairy tales? Who is sharing this journey with you that you are most grateful for? Are they there in "good times or bad"? Today I hope that real life is gentle with you and that any rocks that are in your way are there in love. Namaste
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
