A wise person once said that if the only virtue we learned was gratitude, all the others would bloom from the sheer notion that we are thankful for everything. Yes, everything in our lives, even the negative things as well as the positive.
The negative or tragic experiences in our lives can have devastating consequences on our psyche, but they can also remind us that we are mortal and spiritual beings that dwell in a human body. Every day, we are experiencing the power of the universe and we are given the opportunity to think any which way we wan to think about what we experience in life.
With the XMas Holidays upon us, let us be thankful for one another and let us also be mindful that many need a smile, a hug, or an ear to be listened to. It is the gift that keep on giving when we are grateful for everything and everyone in our lives and in this world.
