A Reminder

This week, in the U.S., there is a focus on gratitude. I find it a bit frustrating. Gratitude should have no boundaries. Gratitude should not have a day on the calendar. It should not be the focus of the fall season. Instead, gratitude should overwhelm with every breath taken. Every thought. Every fear. Every worry. Gratitude should walk hand in hand with all of those emotions. Why? Be grateful for fear and worry?

Damn, it's because I am alive and able to enjoy life in spite of my hips. Today, I enjoyed the outdoors. It was cold, but the sun was glorious. I've been feeling a bit lost with my ongoing body defects and as I was sitting with the sun bathing me, one of the songs that I have on my Spotify came on. And it brought me back to where I need to be with my mind, body, spirit.

When you've lost your way

Colors start to fade

Take a look within

Find your offering

Hold it to the sun

Let your spirit run


Remember find your center

-Trevor Hall

So, even though the color of hope sometimes feels like it is fading, I grab that gratitude from within and find my focus. It is that daily practice of gratitude that helps my "spirit run". What is yours?
