Growth and Glue of Gratitude

I want to say thank you. Thank you for you. Thank you for every lesson. Thank you for every once of growth.

Do you find it ironic that there is a focus of gratitude in our culture is typically during the holidays only? I do.

More and more, I have found myself over the last several years focused on gratitude all the time.

This year, it really grew to another level.

It made me realize how much gratitude glues our lives, if we allow it.

It really all came together when I broke my foot earlier this year.

YES, you read that right. BROKE.

As in couldn't walk, get my own groceries, clean my own house, workout, anything I was used to doing on my own. Things I didn't realize how HUGE they were. You bet I realize it NOW.

As I reflected on how it happened (crashing into shore and falling backward on my first surfing lesson), and that could have stopped it (if I paid attention and was patient - high tide, unpredictable sets, waiting for Costa Rica) and that I now had a choice.

A choice not only with the injury, more importantly with life.

I had a choice to focus on the positive.
