This paragraph was shared with me today, and as Gratitude is a skill I teach so very often, I thought to share it! Other words for this include “Finding the Gift (in a situation)”
“Gratitude is rooted in appreciating and recognizing the inherent value in something — whether welcomed or not. It requires an opening of the heart to potential, and an awakening of the soul to realize there is indeed beauty in every moment, if we allow it. That beauty isn’t always easily discovered or radiating, in fact it’s often quite the opposite; dormant, waiting to be discovered in places that scare and frighten us. That same scary story, if we are open to it, shifts from something personal to something that is part of the way the world works”.
