The Hardest Arithmetic to Master (What If Today We Were Just More Grateful?)


I posted this on one of my other blogs today . . . http://fullcatastropheliving.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/what-if-today-we-were-more-grateful/

It’s about increasing our level of gratefulenss and appreciation, but if we do that, we will invariably increase our capacity to Love as well, so, ultimately, it’s also a post about Love.

“When it comes to life the critical thing is whether we take things for granted or take them with gratitude.” – G.K. Chesterton

The hardest arithmetic to master is the one which enables us to count our blessings.” – Eric Hoffer
