Daily Gratitude Meditation: Pause.
Take a moment to do the most important thing you will do all day: extend your deepest gratitude for this moment and for all of the many blessings that bring you joy in this life.
Excerpt from: “why gratitude is the only reasonable response to life. #MeditationThoughtMondays” published November 2015
“It’s November and Facebook is blowing up with ‘Thankful Lists.’ These lists say something like, “Today I’m thankful for my house, my family, my car, my bathtub and my Pumpkin Spice latte.” My list usually includes my space heater and my warm socks.
But gratitude deserves more attention than your 30-day Facebook List. It deserves more attention than the ten minutes at the Thanksgiving table when your family members identify one thing they are grateful for before digging into fall roasted veggies.
In reality, gratitude is the only reasonable response to being alive.
Why? Because if you really think about it, being alive is practically a miracle.
Whether or not you pause to acknowledge it, a joyful, abundant, and healthy life is pouring itself upon you in each moment.
