It's easy to be grateful when things are going well.
What's even more courageous and beautiful is the willingness to find gratitude in difficult and painful moments. If we choose to look for the lessons and the learning when we're in the shadow, we're likely to find it, because we see what we look for. Then we become champions of our challenges rather than victims.
I'm grateful for my ability and willingness to feel. I'm grateful for the openness, purity and love within my heart. I'm grateful for the souls that come into my life and present me with the opportunity to learn and grow.
