For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything Thy goodness sends.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

12. And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:
Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.

- Kahlil Gibran

13. We only live once. We all have an expiration date after that we will never come again. I am not saying that to make you sad. I am saying that so you can cherish each moment in your life and be grateful that you are here and you are Special.

- Pablo

14. Being in the habit of saying “Thank you,” of making sure that people receive attention so they know you value them, of not presuming that people will always be there – this is a good habit, regardless … make sure to give virtual and actual high-fives to those who rock and rock hard.

- Sarah Wendell

15. I have learned over a period of time to be almost unconsciously grateful–as a child is – for a sunny day, blue water, flowers in a vase, a tree turning red. I have learned to be glad at dawn and when the sky is dark. Only children and a few spiritually evolved people are born to feel gratitude as naturally as they breathe, without even thinking. Most of us come to it step by painful step, to discover that gratitude is a form of acceptance.

- Faith Baldwin

16. Appreciation can change a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

- Margaret Cousins

17. Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.

- Ralph Marston

18. Gratitude for the abundance you have received is the best insurance that the abundance will continue.

- Muhammad

Music, it hits directly in the head, goes right into the heart and opening the most tightly closed heart; it is the language of heart where words become superficial. Quoting Hans Christian Andersen, “Where words fail, music speaks.”

The video below is simply beautiful and beautifully simple, yet it didn’t fail to touch my heart and I believe it will touch yours too.

Gratitude is the key to life's abundance

Gratitude is the key to life’s abundance.

- Symphony of Love
________________________________

I acknowledge the good that I already have in life and I am grateful for the abundance that life has given me. The below TED’s video has just shown me how I gonna fall in love with my life with gratefulness for the abundance and I too, hope that it would make you fall in love with yours.

Two of the numerous take backs from Brother David Steindl-Rast’s spoken words in the video which I would like to share with you:

“You think this is just another day in your life? It’s not just another day, it’s the one day that is given to you, today … it’s given to you, it’s a gift, it’s the only gift that you have right now and the only appropriate response is gratefulness …”

“Open your heart … that everyone that you meet on this day will be blessed by you … just by your eyes, by your smile, by your touch … just by your presence … let the gratefulness overflow into blessings all around you … then it would really be a good day!”

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

- Aesop -
________________________________

Indeed, no matter how small an act of kindness is, it never fails to warmth the heart of the receiver and for the giver, you’ll simply feel fabulous! And if you happen to witness a random act of kindness, don’t you feel good too and be influenced, to certain extent, to perform an act of kindness for another?

Voltaire said, “I have decided to be happy because it’s good for my health.” I have decided to be kind because I believe it’s good for my health too; simply because being kind makes one happy.

Not only that, Kindness starts a ripple and when it is reciprocated or when it is paid forward, the ripple has no logical endings. And kindness is the hardest to give away because no matter what, it always comes back in one way or another. This video brilliantly illustrates an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next and eventually to boomerang back to the person who set it into motion.

Be the change you want to see in the world and spread the kindness ripple.
