Gratitude is that inner appreciation that can't help but bubble-up and spill forth. It's recognizing that in this moment all is good. It's about slowing down enough to recognize just how brilliant your life is...even when all your ducks aren't in a row. It's the deep breath, the smile from a stranger, the kind acknowledgements that sink into your bones and radiate out appreciation. Practicing gratitude when life is hard is exactly how we learned gratitude in the first place. Gratitude is actually more potent when things go sideways. That's when we lean on gratitude to show us who we really are. It teaches us to give thanks for all aspects of our life that developed us into kind, caring, mindful members of the planet. May you be grateful for all that you are, and for all that have and don't have, and for all that you GIVE. - Lesley Lawrence
