Little worker bees seek flower to flower to collect sweet nectar, this collaboration not only nourishes their bee community but pollinate seeds that bloom beautiful flowers. It begins with the need to feed, just like we need to feed our soul with love and sweetness. From that need the journey begins and we encounter one flower at a time, eventually fields and fields of flowers appear, traces of gratitude spreads. Gratitude is an action that creates ripples effects of appreciation, and that action could be many things. To a prayer, gift, letter, or ritual, any practice with the intention to express thankfulness softens negativity. For me, gratitude is transforming suffering into self-empowerment. When I look back at moments that I can begin the process of dismantling my story, I begin to feel freer and more liberated. The power of gratitude is love. Start where you are and stay gentle with yourself as you begin the process. Start small to collect the sweet nectar in your life!
