If All I Have Is This

Then I want for nothing more.

I was recently reminded about the importance of gratitude. This principle ties in with my desire to be more present, and to live in the experiences of the moment as a way to remember and really treasure the small things. I struggle with this many times because I get bogged down in what isn't, and what should have been, and what can't be. But I'm learning that what's really important and what keeps us from complete disconnection is gratitude for what is, what was, and what could be. I have started to embrace this principle of gratitude more now by asking myself "What things are you grateful for today?", and I strive to make that list longer and more real each time.

What things are you grateful for today?
