Today I am grateful that I said YES to Gratitude.

“I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are only called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can can see through all of life’s illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.”

― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

It might sound crazy,

downright weird,

I might be a little of both…

“The more grateful we are, the more we practice this in our everyday lives, the more connected we become to the universe around us.”

― Stephen Richards

Incorporating this exercise

of conscious gratitude into my day

has opened the floodgates

of the universe,

for blessings from G-d.

“A new day: Be open enough to see opportunities. Be wise enough to be grateful. Be courageous enough to be happy.”

― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

I am inundated with

possibilities to broaden

my horizons.

Good things, YES,

good things to come.

I am saying

YES to healing,

YES to opportunities,

YES to my inner-self –

the self that I lost long ago,

YES to me.

Can you think of one thing,

just one thing to be grateful for each day?

If so,

say YES with me

say YES to you

YES to possibilities

YES to gifts

YES to good

YES to gratitude.

“Gratitude is one of the most powerful human emotions. Once expressed, it changes attitude, brightens outlook, and broadens our perspective.”

― Germany Kent


YES I am grateful

YES I am thankful

Therefore, I am blessed

because I choose to say YES!

“Being grateful does not mean that everything is necessarily good. It just means that you can accept it as a gift.”

  1. My mother still reminds me to be grateful for every precious day. In general, people need to be more grateful for the little things in life. Turn up the sunshine!
