When things in my own life feel like they are going just as bad as possible, I try to remind myself that there are others out there who have things much worse than me. And then my thoughts turn to gratitude for what I do have and how fortunate I am for the simple things. So for now I will be grateful and allow the gifts to flow into my universe. I am grateful for my family, my friends, my ability to work, to write and to dream. May we all find gratitude in our daily living.
