Sunday Dinner: Grateful

~
“I am grateful for what I am and have.
My thanksgiving is perpetual.
It is surprising how contented one can be
with nothing definite –
only a sense of existence.
… I am ready to try this 
for the next ten thousand years,
and exhaust it …
 My breath is sweet to me.
O how I laugh when I think
of my vague indefinite riches.
No run on my bank can drain it,
for my wealth is not possession
but enjoyment.”
.
Henry David Thoreau

“Be thankful for your allotment in an imperfect world.  
Though better circumstances can be imagined,
far worse are nearer misses
than you probably care to realize.”
.

“You have to be able to slow down enough
to switch your focus away from
all the ways things could be better,
to know how good they already are.”

“One single gift acknowledged in gratefulness
has the power to dissolve the ties of our alienation.”

“It’s a funny thing about life,
once you begin to take note
of the things you are grateful for,
you begin to lose sight
of the things that you lack.”

Every artistic creation is a statement of gratitude.”

“Don’t ever stop believing in your own transformation.
It is still happening
even on days you may not realize it
or feel like it.”
