I was having one of those bummer kind of days. Trying a number of strategies to snap me out of it flopped. Fortunately, I finally turned to gratitude. As you are no doubt aware, so much has been written about the benefits of gratitude including several of my posts along the way. The bottom line is that gratitude works. It benefits us in innumerable ways. For today, however, I would just like to share this beautiful video. Trust me, it is worth 6 minutes of your time.
A Grateful Day
The narrator is Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Dominican monk. You can find several of his talks on gratitude and happiness on You Tube. One of my favorite quotes of his that has helped me a lot is, “We can’t be grateful for everything, but in a single moment we can be grateful for something.”
Comments are welcome.
