Gratitude…

In my weekly yoga class, the instructor regularly talks about gratitude.  I find myself thinking about what Im grateful for often.  General list:

  • Being healthy (having the choice to be able to exercise & eat nutritious foods)
  • Wonderful parents, boyfriend, friends, and family (& the best dog in the world) 🙂
  • Waking up everyday with a purpose — with the choice to live life to the fullest
  • The choice to be happy

There are so many people in the world who dont have choices to, say, exercise. Or they dont feel they have a choice to treat their bodys well because it is so hard for them to say no to unhealthy food options.  So many people have a cracked support structure (minimal love and trust from family and friends).  As we all get caught up in the madness and craziness that ensues our everyday lives, we forget to stop and be grateful for “what is” and for everything we have in our lives and are able to do.

What are you grateful for….?

  1. i am grateful for my family and friends. i am grateful for being able to further my education and to work in a career i love.

    your post made me think of something my yoga instructor once told us.

    {be now here. be nowhere.}

    such a small change in the spacing of a sentence, yet such a drastic difference in meaning.

  2. I love that Katy — and you are right, it is such a drastic difference in the meaning.

    We forget to enjoy life and be grateful for everything that we have, have been given, and opportunities we havent even realized. Usually because we want more, need more, upset about anything…traffic, money, etc…. the list could go on and on.

    Instead of wanting for anything, we should stop and enjoy the moment — the “right now”. So easy to say and so difficult to do. 🙂

    Thanks for the comment!
