Yep...today was a bit better in the feeling "ok" category. I went on a gratitude walk this morning instead of a begging-for-everything-to-turn-out walk. I know that it is ultimately up to us to put forth a modicum of effort to help strengthen our weaker points. I am so grateful for all the stuff...good and not-so-good. The fact that I could even whisper "thank-you" as I took each step was glorious. To feel, period. Thank you. I am so happy and grateful that I get to experience a range of emotions. The range helps me to feel more through my "human eyes" and to see more with an open heart. For in the beauty and center of gratitude, an emergence of light is always there. A speck of hopefulness is ever present and a new willingness to keep trusting the divine becomes more apparent than we realize.
