Being Grateful = Being In Love With Your Life
Lately I’ve been observing that as I focus on gratitude my love affair with my own life increases and blossoms. If one can do no more, let us say, or even think ‘I am grateful. I am thankful. I am blessed. I am grateful. I am thankful. I am blessed.’ Repetition is encouraged.
This gorgeous group of artistic images makes my heart sing. From online sources I gathered them together as I pondered Jack Kerouac’s encouragement for us to ‘be in love with’ our own lives, every detail of it. I’ve shared this quote recently with different art because I like returning to themes as I examine a certain topic. . . such as, lately, being in love with our lives.
Love for life blossoms in the present moment as we are grateful for what is going well in our lives. As we contemplate and focus on what we’re already blessed with, we begin to really see. . . blessings are everywhere.
Even after the darkest of times the brightness of joy returns, just as spring follows winter and dawn follows night. Every dawn is a beautiful occasion to help us foster gratitude. Enjoy this incredible, brand new morning, waiting with untold opportunities of new and better things. Carpe diem!
