I just read the premiere issue of my coach’s newsletter. It contained the perfect quote for how I am feeling today:
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to live on this beautiful and astonishing planet Earth. In the morning, I wake up with a sense of gratitude.”
>> Earl Nightingale
And that is EXACTLY how I felt when I watched the sun come up!
How often are we grateful for the sunrise? I certainly “take it for granted…” and why shouldn’t I…it has happened, without fail, for the last billion (?) years!
There is a strong correlation between health and gratitude. And it is so easy to be grateful!
This morning I wish to say “thank you” to the sun, and to “our creator” of every sunrise. “Keep up the good work.” 🙂 🙂 🙂
And while I am thinking of it; log onto www.jochristie.com and sign up for her newsletter!
What do you think of when you think of “the earth?” Mother Earth? The Good Earth? Earth Day?
I think of the gifts of our planet that she so wonderously and generously provides us; with or without our gratitude.
Today is not Earth Day. Earth Day is in April. April 22, I believe. There are many events that occur on Earth Day; and our earth certainly deserves a day of her own to be celebrated. But, why not celebrate our earth every day? It does not need to be a “great celebration.” A few minutes of gratitude for Mother Earth each morning as we wake, each evening as we drift off to sleep…
Do you have more than a few minutes? Maybe ten? I read a great article by Karen Talavera named Ten Minutes for Planet Earth. I invite you to read it, and consider how YOU will honor and thank our Mother Earth for ALL that she does for us. Without her, where would we be?
