Gratitude & Perspective

This is the best reminder for a Monday morning. Being grateful & maintaining a well-rounded perspective is so important ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ I firmly believe that constantly being in a state of gratitude has altered my life in numerous positive ways. 

โ€œIt never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend...seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow Internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now. /react-text react-text: 40 Weโ€™re on a planet that somehow knows how to rotate on its axis and follow a defined path while it hurtles through space! Our hearts beat! We can see! We have love, laughter, language, living rooms, computers, compassion, cars, fire, fingernails, flowers, music, medicine, mountains, muffins! The fact that we arenโ€™t stumbling around in an inconsolable state of sobbing is appalling. The Universe must be like, โ€˜what more do I have to do to wake these bitches up? Make water, their most precious resource, rain down from the sky?โ€™โ€. -Jen Sincero, You Are A Badass (pp. 36-37)
