I was in a class full of words like the art of living and the sweetness of life. For me, looking at or looking for what I am grateful for every day is like extracting the sweetness of life. I’ll have more of that!

Today, I was lovingly called a little minx. Turns out even though I have heard this word before, I didn’t know what it meant. I always though it was the word mink. I always wondered about being compared to an animal prized for its fur… But they’re cute so why not. But today, I was asked what it was in French. Luckily, I did not say that it meant “petit vison” and instead, I was looking for an equivalent… And later someone heard me talk about it and set me straight about the spelling: minx (friponne). I apologize for anyone who might have been called a little mink by accident! And I am grateful for great learning!

I was listening to a webinar called “how to live like a magical unicorn” and the facilitator, Cory Michelle talked about gratitude. She said that to increase our gratitude we need to be grateful for everything, the good, the bad, the ugly. And for the bad and the ugly, we can ask “what is the gift in this?” It is not about figuring it out, but by asking, we may get a different perspective, later. And this different perspective can create space for a different possibility. How does it get any better than that?
I am grateful for this awesome inspiring webinar!

One of my managers is retiring. I am happy for her and sad for me because she is awesome at her job. Her awesomeness made my job easier. I am grateful I got to work with her. And what would it take for the manager who will replace her to be as fantastic?

I went out on my lunch break, looking for something to be grateful for or in awe of or enthusiastic about. After a few minutes walking outside, I started noticing the sidewalk art made by the colorful autumn leaves. And sure enough I couldn’t stop myself from collecting the perfect orange leaf.
I am grateful for the colors of today.

“On ne voit bien qu’avec le coeur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.”
Since I used this quote as a mantra when I was a kid, I would like to translate it slightly differently: We only see well when looking with our heart. what’s essential is invisible to the eye.
Opening our heart or keeping it open is no small feat. I am grateful for the tools I have learned along the way allowing me to re-open my heart a little more every day.
