Gratitude

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I come up against challenges and doubts frequently, and I see that the energy behind my movement no longer comes from my deficiencies but my strengths.  The motion comes not from trying to fill a hole but summonsing the innate energies wishing to be spilled out.  Freedom comes from expressing what is and not holding back in fear of being judged or not enough.

Uncertainty, then, is the space of creation because with gratitude for uncertainty, there is only infinite possibility.

I invite you to take a moment to acknowledge the power of the simple tool that is gratitude, and take a deep breath into both the tiny and massive miracles in your life right here and right now.  From the intricacies with which our bodies function, to the beautiful connections we share with others, to the range of the seasons in nature and life.

In one moment of gratitude, we can shift from not having or being  enough to the freeing experience of being and having all that we need.

With a week coming to an end that I can hardly remember the start of, I sit in a moment of reflection and gratitude.  A day with my parents at home, laughter and shared time with friends, and a whirlwind of creating, serving, learning, and working.

Here’s to this moment as an end and a new beginning.

With heart,

S
