"All moments are beautiful, only you have to be receptive and surrendering. All moments are blessings, only you have to be capable of seeing. All moments are benedictions, if you accept with a deep gratitude, nothing ever goes wrong."

"The benefits of gratitude are HUGE. For yourself, it can be a symbolic way of giving back.
For others, your gratitude is a mirror: a recognition, appreciation, encouragement and inspiration.
Gratitude gives you true clarity and focus on how your successes came to be.
Practicing this gives you the confidence to do the other scary tasks at hand and continuously catapult your life forward."
"Notice how the situation doesn’t need your stress to resolve itself. And by not giving so much energy to intense moments—by not squandering your life force—you are more at ease and happier in all moments."
