Reflection and gratitude crush this

Stitch. Everywhere. Lilo sometimes. Biking Going to the Sun Road June 2019, 300 meters from Continental Divide at Logan Pass.

Reflection and gratitude crush this.

Crush what?

Unhappiness.

Imagine being asked to start writing all the things you are grateful for and not being able to ever finish your list.

Try being unhappy when you are grateful.

PS. If it ain’t obvious, highly recommend Hailey’s video. Only 12 minutes.

Gratitude

Another photo from the homeowners dock. Quite a lovely place for a phone call.

When we drove to Epcot for dinner two days ago, a car pulled out in front of us while we traveled at 55-mph (88-kph).

Was grateful for so many things:

  • Eyesight
  • Being able to drive
  • Being with family
  • Able to go to Epcot for dinner on a moment’s notice
  • Having three seconds in the day to “lose” from the slowdown
  • Having well-maintained roads, everywhere
  • No one got hurt
  • Nothing was damaged
  • Was driving the speed-limit
  • Having an adult mindset to focus on gratitude, not “poor driving judgement”
  • Seeing the long line of vehicles behind us and realizing the driver made a practical move

Gratitude is your leader

i love to travel to speak, but not a fan of being gone. Pictured here is my speaking “costume”. Travel light and be grateful you are alive and get to transform lives.

“Gratitude leads everything in my life,” Oniwar said in the documentary. “…As I tell my class, if everything in the world has gone bad, it’s an opportunity to be grateful that you’re still here to notice it.”

Rock bottom is a solid foundation on which you can begin rebuilding.

Asterisk moment

Grateful to be able to bend down to ground level.

Asterisk moment.

Mid Life Celebration’s post today made it sound like everyone can make an endless list of things to be grateful for.

Disney Cast Member years of service celebration.

Seems ridiculously simple.

Celebrating everything.

You know, being grateful and all of that.

Please make sure near the top of your list of celebratory things is you.
