An Attitude of Gratitude

As we prepare to ring in the New Year I am counting my blessings, which are made more clearly evident to me by my awareness of the difficulties many in our country and the world face.

It is so easy to get caught up in the negative media hype, the political shenanigans, and future fears. We can loose sight of the most basic truth; we are here now, in whatever life situation we find ourselves,  and we have the capacity to love and be loved. Everything else is, well, imagination, really.

Today I am giving thanks for the loving that is present in my life and letting the rest go. My resolution for 2012 is to have the presence of mind and the strength of conviction to do so every day.

If you are reading this, thank you for being in my life, you are a blessing. I wish you a very Happy New Year with the hope that the light of love fills your heart in 2012 and beyond.
Salute!
Victoria
