Gratitude: Week 48

May 28, 2017

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." 

Gratitude: Week 48 (May 21 - May 27)

As I approach the end of this 52-week journey with gratitude I examine the lessons, discarding unnecessary pain with the victory of grace when I recognize what I had instead of what was lost. And as the "why me" rattles my thoughts, I notice the treasures that have bloomed in its space, uprooting the chaotic pieces that had once consumed my heart.

During any hardship, I want to jump to the future, to the place where it all becomes clear and the lesson understood, but our life is not designed that way, fulfilled like orders with the efficiency of Amazon. We need to identify our direction in order to flourish with the knowledge provided.

During a pursuit of happiness, the capacity to comprehend is not always uncovered at the end of that journey but perhaps instead, within the middle, during the sifting and waiting, where compassion and empathy are born through examination, and where heartache begins to heal.

Many things happen for no reason, except to teach the value of life, and regardless of the control you think you have, you have no control. Things still go wrong, people get sick and sadness steps into another life ready to take over and create change.

Through it all, I am discovering grace in the lessons that chaperoned me onto this path, opening my heart to awaken my soul and provided the gratitude necessary to notice.  

From the list...
