Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past,

brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

– Melody Beattie

The year is coming to a close and holidays can be an epic effort. I’m offsetting the challenge with a list of what I’m grateful for, as well as a bunch of playlists from those of you who have submitted them over the last few days in response to the “Let’s Share A Mixtape” post. 

This year has been amazing watching the collective effort come together globally. Looking forward to see what comes next. Thank you everyone.

a short poem of gratitude:

I am grateful to be blessed with childlike curiosity.
Restlessness charges my soul with life and yearning.
Questions drive me forward.
My passion is a fire and a beacon of light guiding my path.
I am grateful for endless mysteries.
All of you shape my thoughts and emotions.
We grow together through each discovery.
Thank you for being there.
