Living with the impermanence of life and practicing an attitude of gratitude is a tricky balancing act sometimes (well, all the time actually). Life is fragile, and painful, and sad! And it is amazing, and uplifting, and joyous! And it is all of those things at the same time. At both the personal level (hard stuff in my family right now) and the global level (so much unbelievable pain) I often seem to find myself disheartened. And then, at least occasionally, I manage to remember that if I stay stuck in that condition I have given up my power. And then I’m not doing myself or anyone else any good. So, in this moment when there is so much going on around me that tries to bring me down and keep me there, I am choosing to remember that there is more to this life than I will ever be able to imagine or comprehend. I may not always manage to recognize it, or understand it, or even notice it, but the Truth is that I am always and forever blessed beyond measure. And I am grateful for all the amazing partners who are sharing this most amazing journey with me. Thank you.
