"It is not happiness that makes us grateful; it’s gratefulness that makes us happy.” - David Steindl-Rast

All of us would love to live happier lives.

It is a common desire that binds us together - the search for more joyful living.

Lessons come to us when we most need to learn them, often in surprising ways. I learned a few things recently from one of my favorite teachers - Mother Nature.

Let’s rewind a few weeks, and you’ll find me praying for angelic help and a little extra time to meet my dead...

This week, in the book and on social media, we've been talking a lot about staying in the present moment to feel better and to live better.

Today, let's take a minute and slow down a little.

Notice more. Breathe it all in. Give thanks.

We are rich with gifts, right where we are, when we look at this day through the eyes of gratitude.

“This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.”

From one of my heroes, Maya Angelou, this beloved quote illustrates how she not only had a way with words, but a way with gratitude.

Just think.

There can be a precious day of the week when we don't wake up and look at the phone.

A day when we can linger longer in our morning meditation.
