Cultivate Gratitude

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth
“You owe me”
Look what happens with a love like that
It lights the whole sky

~D. Landinsky (attributed to Rumi)

 

At dusk, as I walked into the woods, I noticed the tops of the barren trees shimmering with golden sunlight and took this photograph. There are a thousand things each day for which to be thankful. Cultivate gratitude as the Sun does for the Earth. Be joyful as the Earth is in the Sun’s light.

Cultivating gratitude and joy is one of the keys to wholehearted living. I am reminding myself each day to be thankful, to pay attention, and write down at least one thing that I am grateful for each day. What are you grateful for today?

 

What do you think?
