Day Ten: In one minute, you can make a difference today…

Making a difference in our community at Maplewood Karate

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”  Albert Schweitzer

Could you be the one that rekindles the light for someone else today? Your words of gratitude can turn someone’s day around.  They have the power to make an ordinary day become more meaningful for someone who reads them.

Last week I received an email from someone  to tell me that after reading some of the gratitude posts  she had experienced a richer day, one where she noticed and appreciated some day to day conveniences she hadn’t before.   She was then inspired to post her words of gratitude with a thought: “Perhaps my words can make a difference in someone’s life today.”

What are you grateful for today?  Gratitude if practiced, has the power to change the ordinary into the extraordinary not only for you but for others.

  1. I am grateful that I am surrounded by beauty at this time of year.
    I am grateful that I am surrounded by my kind teachers!

  2. I am grateful for the Advil that is bringing down my son’s fever. I am grateful he is such a cute, cuddly and cheerful patient. I am grateful that my own patients are able to come in later this week.

  3. I’m thankful for a gorgeous day, for our walk in the park today and for the pictures I was taking trying to capture and commemorate the beauty of the moment.
