50-1derful YOU!

Life is truly a gift.  Each moment is a blessing.  We choose to see the beauty and the gifts in life by what we focus our attention on.  When we focus our attention, our hearts, our minds, on love, compassion, giving, kindness, that is what we will see in the world. 


The opposite is true of course but we are not going there ... not here, not now. 


We choose how we feel about life's challenges, adversity, and disappointments.  It is okay to feel whatever "negative" emotions we choose, we just don't want to stay there too long.  When we move past negative, we are in a position to receive the bountiful gifts that surround us.

Kathleen, this is a beautiful post and pretty well sums up all the miscellany that surrounds us and compels us to feel grateful. I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. 

If you are open this afternoon/evening, come to Baker Beach and take part in the celebration of light and gratitude while walking a labyrinth, listening to the waves at the shore.
