Your 9 Minute Beauty and Gratitude Challenge
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
This post was originally planned as my holiday “gift to you” post for Christmas week, but I decided to move it forward, because this season we’ve been reminded, in spectacular fashion, of the best and worst of humankind.
I referred to this post as a “challenge” because the video I’m sharing with you is 9 minutes in length – longer than I would normally share, and way longer than most people will tolerate sticking with a blog post. And yet, I decided to share it because I’ve watched it 3 times and each time ended up with a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat.
We are all connected as one …
So, here’s my challenge to you – make the time to watch this presentation now. If you bookmark it you’ll forget, and then it will get buried, and eventually deleted. You need this message … just going by the sea of frowns on the faces I saw around town yesterday … we all need this message! I can promise you that by the end of it, your heart will be filled to overflowing with gratitude for the beauty and wonder that surrounds us.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John F. Kennedy
