There is beauty in silence, and yes, sometimes you are meant to keep things to yourself. But I love that quote because for me it means that you don't take anything for granted. There is beauty and power in verbalizing gratitude. And urgency. Tomorrow many of us will pause to be with family and friends -- if we are so lucky -- and taking the time to acknowledge their worth in your life will add to the grace of the day. I believe communicating is an art form that must be learned and practiced on the daily. Each day I learn a new way. Telling each of your beloveds that they matter in your life, that they are loved and appreciated is a powerful gesture.
But, the grace shouldn't be only shared at meal time or during special days - incorporating gratefulness in every part of your life, everyday, will usher in positivity because you remind yourself of all the wondrous things that surround you.
"You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert, and the opera and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, pairing, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink." GK Chesterton
To you, dear reader where ever you are, you bless me with loyal support and for that I am grateful.
I thank you for taking precious time to stop by and read my words. May you be surrounded by abundance, health, positivity, and peace of mind, body and soul.
