Gratitude 7/17/07

Gratitude can be fleeting, but I am committed to this pretty much daily practice. So, some things I am grateful for today:

1) Loss. It's amazing how much one can learn from suffering. The more I can sit with the things that hurt, the more determined I am to value the things I have. And the more I want to work for the things that matter to me, especially the people I love.

2) Fear. When I can face the fears that haunt me, I am stronger for it.

3) My health. When I was young, I never thought I'd see forty years of age. But here I am, healthy, and about to start a new path in my life as a student seeking a doctorate in psychology. That feels amazing.

What are you grateful for today?
