Living In Gratitude: When You Arise
When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light.
Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies within yourself.
Each and every day, we awake to new opportunities. By starting our day with gratitude, we chose to accept all that day has to offer with an open mind and open heart.
We all have days that seem to offer more challenges than others yet even those present us with blessings. The sun on your back, the air you breathe, the food that nourishes your body, the healing warmth of a hug.
Having an attitude of gratitude during the ‘good times’ helps carry you through the times that are more difficult. Keeping a gratitude journal can be a valuable resource, offering us a reminder of what life offers as we flip through it’s pages.
There is always a reason to give thanks. And, in the words of Tecumseh, if you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies within yourself.
