Space for gratitude

Here’s an other gem from Karl over at Mindful Balance. Notice what your intention is next time you take a walk…

Then there was Jim, who said that for many years he took walks that were ‘ranting’ walks. He would walk and contemplate all the things that angered him about the world. One day he decided to begin taking ‘gratitude’ walks. ‘Now while I walk I recount all the things I am grateful for in my life and don’t allow myself to think of negative things at all. I have found this simple practice to be a great gift.’

  1. I love gratitude. I try to be in that place as much as possible. When I am home where there is beauty, love, silence and solitude, it is easy. Out in the world with TVs and noise and angry people it is a little harder, but when I am being in gratitude there, as well, it changes everything. Thanks Val.

  2. I love walking. I do a lot of long walks, in the woods, in busy streets, in different countries. Here’s one of the things I learned while walking: that every step I make is an affirmation of grace, of mercy, of being alive, of making me aware of what matters in life. I walk with a grateful heart. Thanks, Val, for posting this nice quote.
