Today, stand in gratitude, no matter what your life holds. Be grateful to be alive, to be drawing this breath, to be standing where you are, poised to take one more step on this glorious adventure.
Does it not seem glorious? Then release your expectations about what you wanted this moment to hold. Release your disappointments and frustrations. Release that pressure to have something occur within a certain time frame. Release all that and instead just be.
Now, is it not glorious? Look up at the sky and let that wide wonder fill you. Look at a leaf and study the detail. Is it not wondrous how each leaf is unique, each and every leaf on every tree, carved out with the wonder and glory of the universe?
And you, are you not wondrous? You are as that leaf, unique in all the world and yet a part of the tree of life. You are full of potential and the possibilities to use that potential are sparkling all around you.
Appreciate what is. Give thanks for being alive. And now, from this place of gratitude, open your heart. Open yourself wide and connect with the wonder. Feel your oneness. Feel how truly blessed you are.
