In spite of whatever is happening in your life, can you step back far enough to realize the simple miracle of existence? How many free breaths have you taken? How much food and water have you consumed in your lifetime, and who did you thank for that? Imagine the abundance of the millions and billions of lives that are comfortably sustained by the planet? This miracle is awe-inspiring for anyone who pauses to bear witness to it.

The more we dwell in this space of awe, the more gratitude we feel for the precious moment in front of us.

The more gratitude we feel, the more awe we feel. And so gratitude is the gateway to happiness in the present moment. What are you thankful for?
