Living In Gratitude: Morning Offering

May I have the courage today

To live the life that I would love,

To postpone my dream no longer

But do at last what I came here for

And waste my heart on fear no more.

~John O’Donohue’s Morning Offering

This wonderful poem is the perfect way to begin each day. It serves as a reminder that we can each have the life that we dream of when we cast aside our fear and move steadfastly toward what we wish to achieve. 

Each of us have talents and gifts that we can offer the world. Often, we hold back on sharing these because we doubt ourselves. Are we good enough? Will our gifts be well received? Can we succeed?

Instead, when we reflect on the abundance of our unique abilities, we come to appreciate our talents, we nurture them and are excited to share them with others. Acknowledge and be grateful for your skills, push fear and doubt aside and do at last what you came here for!

May your day be filled with gratitude and good things!
