At the cross-quarter of the year, let us reflect on Gratitude as our Wheel of the Year moves to a close:
Posted from Druid Wisdom Exchange:
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you the opportunity for improvement
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Because it means you've made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also
thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and
they can become your blessings.
