Practicing Gratitude

Yesterday I cleaned our front door. It’s a beautiful hardwood door. I had not oiled it in some time. As I removed the dirt and began the apply the oil, I realized how important it is to take time to cleanse the residue of experiences that may cloud our view of life. Doing so doesn’t have to be a serious affair. It can be as simple as cleaning our house and doing so with intention and a bit of open hearted gratitude and imagination.

Later on in the day, Maribel and I had a little bonfire in our fire pit. When we finished, just as we were about to go in, a dragonfly landed on our porch wall and just stayed there. I loved this. She was another reminder to keep letting go of that which weighs us down in order to be light.

Happy New Year to you!
