What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet." This quote by Bob Marley is so unhesitatingly profound! Literally, how often do we really enjoy the rain? More often than not, we grumbled about the inconvenience of getting wet.

Anyway, I believe the deeper meaning to Bob Marley's words is that we need to live in the moment, to be one with the elements and embrace every experience. It is about appreciation and thankfulness. Trust me when I say everything that happens to us has its reasons that will make us wiser and stronger. If we try hard enough to focus on the positive of any situation, we will truly be able to live with gratitude for what we have that is good. Gratitude keeps us positive and moving forward.

Another week just swept by and right on the dot, I want to reflect on my daily experiences throughout this past week. Checking in regularly with our gratitude can help keep us grounded and give our life its meaning. Here is my random list of gratitude;

1. I am so grateful to see the light of another new day!
2. I am so grateful for today ... a beautiful Saturday morning!!
3. I am grateful for the energy and the excitement to bask in every new day!
4. I am grateful for the ideas and the enthusiasm that comes with every new morn!
5. I am grateful for this wonderful life!
6. I am so grateful that I am capable of being grateful!
7. I am grateful that my Lord is present in my life always!


Thank you God for giving me another day,
another chance to become a better individual,
another chance to give and experience love.

Thank you God for giving me health,
for the food you provide,
for the awareness you have awaken in me.

Thank you for the energy that feeds my soul,
the sun that warms our bodies
and the air that fills our lungs.

Because of you I believe in the good without the bad and the ugly,
because of you I am learning to love and accept myself,
because of you I believe in believing.

My source, stay connected to me today and always,
for I need you in order to fullfil my spiritual tasks.

God, show me how to love myself,
to be able to love others.
Help me become the type of person that I would like to befriend,
help me forgive myself and forgive others.

God, make me a channel of your energy
and help me understand.
I thank you God for giving me another day,
another unused opportunity to do it right.

Keep us all close to you
and listen to our prayers.
