Your part in your mood

Opening the door to gratitude is not easy.

But when you find out how improbable it is that this (whatever this is) is happening – that anything is happening at all – it can liberate this moment, and the next, and the next, into a new-found amazement. And wonder and amazement, even at the mundane everydayness of life, are the ground from which gratitude arises.

Gratitude, resentment, cynicism, resignation – all involve no small measure of choice on your part.

Which are you in the midst of choosing today?
