Peace in Gratitude- are you looking for peace then say thank you!

Peace in Gratitude!
“Life has to be more simple. We have so many gifts. If you want peace, open your eyes to what you have around you and say thank you.”
Beverly Donofrio

I feel compelled to end the week with my favorite topic- an attitude of gratitude. Life can get hectic because we layer on expectation over expectation. Life can get very stressful because we are fed on a daily basis the suggestion that we need to work harder to acquire more and more. Life can sometimes be unfulfilling because we are seeking outside of ourselves, and fail to see our beauty within. Life can be painful, especially when things happen in this world that are tragic and make no sense.

Stop yourself this very moment and simplify. Realize that everything you need in life you already have within you. Realize all your needs can already be met if you clear away the “stuff” and open your eyes and look around you at all that surrounds you, within and without. Cherish your friends, family, and experiences. Herein lie the gifts of life. Be grateful for having loved ones to celebrate with. To work with, to love with. Even more, be grateful to have loved ones to disagree with. Close your eyes; ask for the peace that can only come from within. Open your eyes and see with renewed vision all the beauty that surrounds you. Pause in that moment, and say a resounding Thank you! Build on that attitude of gratitude for what you have and peace will be yours! Even in the midst of extremely sad or unexplainable happenings, peace must start with you. Let there be peace on earth, let it begin with me. Thank you my friends for you and the experiences we share. I stand today in gratitude for you all because we never know the time or the place, so each moment we shall embrace.
