Several years ago a friend shared with me this beautiful video on gratitude created by Gratefulness.org. It has grown to be one of my favorites as the message is so simple, yet so full of depth. We all know the importance of being thankful for the people, places, and things in our lives-but to be grateful means so much more.
Gratefulness is a way of living, a way of seeing the gifts hidden in the most ordinary and profound aspects of life. It is the ability to transform daily circumstances into lessons of compassion that we gift to others and ourselves. These are some of the discoveries I’ve gained by watching the video. But enjoy the video for yourself and notice the things that come to mind that you are most grateful for.
