I am grateful for every good thing in my life.
I am grateful for every challenge in my life.
I am grateful for every opportunity for growth I am given.
It’s easy enough to feel grateful for things like loving friends, a fulfilling job, and a warm place to sleep. Harder, is feeling grateful for a struggle or a challenging person yet these have always been my greatest teachers, offering me unsurpassed growth potential. Today I intend to feel grateful for every struggle or challenge I face…. and the gift, not yet revealed, that lies within it. I will remember that it is to the mire the lotus owes its beauty.
