Gratitude Spiral: Day 342

Today, I’m grateful for my right to vote in our country’s elections.

Although sometimes it feels like my vote doesn’t matter in this non- “swing state”, I’m thankful that I have a protected right to cast it.

What are you grateful for today?

Today’s Choice

eagle-clip-art-781This morning, I took a walk. With a heavy heart of shame, embarrassment, and sadness, — shared by half of my country — I needed to feel the sunshine, the brisk November air, see the trees, hear the birds. And I had a talk with myself: Choose love. Choose to rise above bigotry, injustice, hatred, and judgement. Choose love, courage, and gratitude with every breath, every step, every action, and every word. Today and each day. Choose love.
