“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity….
It turns problems into gifts, failures into success,
the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision
Gratitude in the midst of defeat is perhaps the greatest achievement one human being can claim. To be grateful when lack resides in the chalice of our hearts, and when disappointment etches itself into the pockets of our dreams, is a measure of courage in the face of the untamed lion.
Stare down the failure, back it into the cage, and turn the key of perception–choose to see the rainbow on the horizon.
Each and every day there are things to be grateful for. Every single breath is a blessing. The simple taste of fresh lemonade on a hot summer day is a gift. Waking to nature’s song sung by a chorus of robins is a treasure.
Unlock the fullness of your life by declaring each precious present that feeds your persistence. Say thank you, each and every day, for the chance to try again.
