Appreciate. What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it? (from Victoria Klein, author of 27 Things to Know About Yoga)
This one’s easy.
I have a new appreciation for life. The miracle of making it from a chance meeting of sperm and egg through 40 weeks of growing brain, heart, lungs and limbs, to where I am now and where I will be at my last breath.
We are miracles. Each of us.
I am grateful for this life, with every fiber of my being, all the time. I couldn’t walk for much of this year, couldn’t stand, couldn’t pick up my child. There were days it hurt to move, to laugh, to sob. There were moments when I wasn’t sure I would live to see the sun rise again. I am grateful. I take none of it for granted. My heart beats gratitude.
