The 9 Days of GRATITUDE- Day 1



I’ve decided to begin a 9 Day GRATITUDE practice. Why 9 days? Well, 9 days gets us almost to the American Thanksgiving, which living overseas I no longer celebrate, but I thought,  why not put a little more gratitude out into the world?
So here’s my Day 1 Post.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into
a friend. It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations into important and beneficial lessons. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Plus I think you’d like it too, especially if your reeeeeeally want to know what it is like to live there. Or find Storage. Or a great recipe for traditional empanadas. Or learn how I slaughtered my first chicken. (he wasn’t so thankful for that but hey, we all have to eat right?
