(I just read an article about appreciation where #6 was "appreciate yourself" and felt inside that it's been a tad longer than is good for me to go between self-gratitude.)
There is nothing of deep beauty in the world that I can bring to mind that does not contain a integral element of stillness.
Music and song
A courageous conversation
A perfect meal
A sublime poem
Even the hummingbird’s beauty includes it’s stillness on the perch or its pause in flight.
And the shooting star is stunning mostly because of the stillness out of which it was born and into which it dies.

I am grateful for the real fun lunch today. A Persian, a Slowakian and myself had a real fun conversation. I am grateful for my boyfriend to bring yummy food for dinner. I am grateful for the sun breaking through the clouds and in between buildings to shine brightly on me. I am grateful for the fun pivoting today when I assumed the best in a situation instead of the worst.
Today I'm grateful for a good night's sleep, that I feel comfortable enough in my new surroundings to sleep well, for a friend that checked up on me, for a beautiful sunny day, for my view from the window of a grassy hill and sparkling lake, for setting up my meditation table and using it, for my plant "Happy" who is happy to have so much sunlight, for this world and all the lovely people in it!
