Thoughts in honor of World Gratitude Day, Sept.

21 st – By Diana Butler Bass

During the last eighteen months, when I felt the most
despair and the deepest pain of isolation, I remembered my
own words and took them to heart: Gratitude is resilience
of sorts, the defiance of kindness in the face of anger, of
connection in the face of division, and of hope in the face of
fear. . . Gratitude empowers us. It makes joy and love
possible. It rearranges the way we see and experience what
is all around us. Gratitude makes all things new. It
transforms how we understand what is broken and gives us
the ability to act more joyfully and with hope. That is why
gratitude is central to all the world’s religions. As a practice,
it embodies the wisdom of humanity’s greatest spiritual
teachers: the love of neighbor. Gratitude takes us from
abstract belief to living compassion in the world. Gratitude
is strongest, clearest, most robust, and radical when things
are really hard. Really hard. All-is-lost hard. You may need
to be reminded of that today. Someone you know might
benefit from a kind word of appreciation or the
encouragement of “thank you.” And so, take time to count
your blessings, thank someone, and pay it forward on this
World Gratitude Day. Be part of a global tribe of
gratefulness.

Happy Birthday
