Growing Gratitude

The winter holiday season is upon again, and for many of us this is a time of wish lists, merriment, generosity and acts of charity. However, the Universe does not perceive giving freely, kindnesses and gratitude as seasonal or trending. Nor should it be a temporary attempt on our part at being “good” at “the right time of year”.

Butterfly and Flower Basket Banner

Mindful Musings are brief thoughts of the day, inspirations, tips and reflections. Enjoy! 🙂

“Personal growth and continuous improvement and personal development;

This is not the corporate world, there are no ceilings on realized potentials and spiritual asset worth.

Your Light and Love when living your fullest, truest self are boundless!

No minister or priest or pastor will make account of your worldly possessions when you go.

No, you will be remembered for your acts of service to others, your loving kindness, your compassion, your strength, your vulnerability, your creativity, your empathy, your courage, your humanity…your character!”
