I'm grateful for plenty of quiet time lately. I'm grateful to have the tv off and only the soft whir of appliances and nature to create my music. Last night the symphony of the bugs was so loud I could not help but assume they were having a big celebration! What could they be celebrating? Maybe they were out in honor of the cooler temperatures or perhaps they were gearing up for the meteor shower. There is so much beauty all around me and I'm grateful to just stop and observe. I'm grateful to have slept well and woken with this same peacefulness. I am so grateful to have a community to come and share these seemingly simple blessings. It really is the small things that make a difference. So what are the small things in your life? How can you tune into your own stillness? What are you grateful for in THIS moment?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
