The Power of Gratitude (#323)

Through reflection, I’m at peace.

Each breath bringing me back to the present.

A flurry of thoughts, scattered.

The past. The present. The future.

Gratitude. Appreciation. Love.

For the many places I’ve been. For the lessons I’ve learned. For the challenges I’ve overcome.

Gratitude and growth go hand in hand on this winding journey.
