Bamboo leaves.

And now, the rest of April can commence:  taxes, deadlines, outflow.  Gratitude for all of it, especially the seasons.  Spring brings more energy and light and outside time.  The flow of trout streams, the chirp of birds nesting, the ebb of cold to warm in the sea, all remind me that our world continues without moral judgments.  The nature of what is becomes more of it.  I am grateful for the saying of William James:

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.

My attitude of gratitude affects all that my day brings, today, and every day.  Enjoy yours!

Best,

Mary

Meister Eckhart

In this day, I can be grateful.  It is a given that all is palatable with gratefulness as gravy.

For the things that I have control over, and feel empowered to do today, I am grateful.  For what I have no control over, and feel letting go is difficult, I am grateful.  For free will, and what God has given me and all others within this human experience, I am grateful.  Whatever is, gratitude can change it for better.

 

With Love,
Mary

Hello gratefulfillment world! http://gratefulfillment.com/1/hello-gratefulfillment-world/ http://gratefulfillment.com/1/hello-gratefulfillment-world/#respond Sun, 06 Jan 2013 22:18:58 +0000 http://gratefulfillment.com/?p=1 Welcome to Gratefulfillment.  This blog is my daily Gratitude List Practice journal.  Being grateful leads to fulfillment I have found.  When I am most grateful, no matter what the circumstances are, I have a sense of all is well.  When I become ungrateful and miss the gratitude target, I usually find myself in a mood that doesn’t lead to productive or happy results.

 

So, encouraging my practice, I thought I’d make it public.  A grateful heart comes from a gratitude list, even if short, every day.

 

Today’s:

I captured a photo of the full moon at first light today.

Best for now,
