"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." -Cynthia Ocelli
One of my biggest pet peeves, if you will, is how the norm has become to turn November into Gratitude Month. Gratitude needs to be and must be every day. In our house, as many of you know, we collect these gratitude's all year long for our November Tree.
The journey we walk as a family talking about the year passed that we had filled with many blessings and trials often brings joy, reflection, light and laughter to our table making this process so enriched. We often come across moments, people, and situations we had forgotten about, and they get to touch our lives yet again in this process. Also, I love to point out that gratitude doesn't have to have to be grand! When it comes to noticing and being aware, the gifts and blessings can be in the littlest of moments or things.
At its core gratitude can come from the most despairing challenges in our lives.
What will you find gratitude for today?
How will you nurture your journey to bring the gift of gratitude alive?
How can you use your gratitude to be a light in others' journeys?
All that is around you is not a given. Consider how big the world is around you and appreciate the smallest of things to live more fully!
