it's funny...when i chose this word, i was thinking of thanksgiving. knowing that my word was falling around the canadian thanksgiving...i thought...perfect!! fitting!! i had chosen this word about a month or more ago as my next word up and when it came down to actually scrapping with the word...i went a completely different route. our lives change so fast...our directions go differently. it brings a new appreciation...gratitude...for our previous journey and a sense of awe for the new one.
i found myself here...in a new journey. a journey of self growth and change. something that i completely embrace. for me these journeys always bring a new sense of awareness and gratitude for all that surrounds me. and it is about this that i chose to scrap. to document all that i am grateful for, all that i show gratitude for in my current self travels. it allows me to find peace and balance. it makes me stop...re-evaluate. and REALLY take a moment to find a gratefulness in my life in all things big and small.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. ~denis waitley
