A Grateful Day | Brother David Steindl-Rast

While searching for a way and manageable practice to implement gratitude exercises in my daily life, a newly met lovely person sent me the link to this video. It didn’t take more than a minute, and tears ran down my cheeks. I just now caught up on this topic. Gratitude does not start with a lovely apartment or enough money in your bank account. Of course, I knew I could be grateful for more, but this information never touched my heart that deeply. But suddenly, it hit me while watching this video.

Gratefulness can be lived much more profoundly if you allow it. It starts with being grateful for:

  • each beat of your heart
  •  each breath you can take
  •  each look you can take at the beauty of the world
  •  each glimpse you can take of the divinity all around us
  •  …. and so much more

This short video awakens the acknowledgement and realization of the wonders of our world, reminds us about what truly matters, invites us to notice the simple gifts of our lives and allows us to implement gratefulness on a yet unknown level in our daily practice.

“So you think this is just another day in your life? It’s not just another day. It is the one day that is given to you … today.”
