Why Gratitude?

I often wonder about gratitude. Why even be thankful with our lot in life. Why not practice acceptance?

Why not just live our lives, day in and day out, and just “be”?

For me, the gratitude component slows me down. 

Gratitude allows me to see, feel and touch things I would never have taken notice of before…

  • The smell of onions cooking in the kitchen
  • The way a flower leans on its “sister” 
  • The sound of a car engine as it pass me by

Small events that may seem like little but coupled together they create my life.

How we view these moments in our lives is determined by each and every one of us. Half full, half empty. Gratitude gives us control over our very existence.
