Gratitude

Gratitude for everything is everything. The game changer is in the art of finding -however minuscule or hidden – that which is worthy (or even potentially worthy) of gratitude in the midst of the crappy condition or circumstance. Agreed it is sometimes a bit of a stretch but every situation has it – it’s up to me to find it if I want to come out on top as opposed to letting the situation bury me.

Now that the 4th of July has passed, how wonderful it is to be able to celebrate Independence Day again today. Not to take anything away from the patriotic and meaningful holiday celebration of last week, but for people like me, every day is Independence Day, as long as I exercise my freedom to choose wisely. For me that means choosing health by means of sobriety.

It is an appropriate comparison that makes sense to me… think of those thin almost translucent layers that suddenly are ready to slide off and be shed, released. Almost imperceptible to the whole but one layer closer to the core, to the center.
