      But if your mind can find that place, even for a just a second, where you see that this might not be so, you’ll break that sense that nothing special is happening.

      Appreciate the little things. The little moments. The little gifts life gives us daily. I love, love, love this piece.

      Well worth the two minutes. A beautiful reminder on how to practice gratitude and love in the ordinary moments of life.

      I read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and started practicing gratitude. Being grateful for what I have and that positive vibes will attract more people-things in my life to be grateful.

      Gratitude is magic. I open my eyes in the morning - thank you. I get out of bed - thank you legs, feet, joints. I sit on the john, thank you bladder and kidneys - thank you for the convenience of a seat in my home! I wash my hands - thank you for running water. And on it goes all day long. Seeing always what is “working”, what is good, what is beautiful, what is the “lesson” hidden in the challenge - all of it fills me to overflowing with a deep sense that life is working for me not against me. It gives me perspective and deep appreciation for my life. Being grateful keeps me grateful and that helps me to want to give of myself to others. Because I have more than enough to give.
