I don’t really get this question. There’s something missing in it. The conditional bit (if) is not there. So I’ll go at this koan-like. I’ll expand the “if” as my answer. If I stopped and savoured what is here now. If I appreciated that I have more than I need. If I saw appreciation in others. If gratefulness moved me to action. If I saw abundance more than scarcity. If it spawned more action to help others.
Keep me present and appreciating my life as it is. When I am grateful my expectations are more reasonable, as am I!
Gratefulness would increase happiness by appreciating what we have instead of what we desire (for as Buddhist teach, desire and ignorance are the roots of suffering). Gratefulness brings an immediate wave of
even in the wake of tragedy.
Using the paradigm of gratefulness can shift perspective.
Today’s quote reminded me of the mindful techniques we work on with young students about the power of yet. I’m not good at math yet but I’m getting better. Fail is first attempt at learning.
I like how you use “yet” with children. Makes me think of Dr. Dweck’s _Growth Mindset_ and an article you might enjoy from Edutopia entitled, “The Neuroscience Behind Productive Struggle.”
Help me to focus more on the positive aspects of my life.
Reorder my conceptions.
Be the catalyst for a Divine smile.
Open up a huge space in my heart, in my soul, in my very essence. It would carry me away on wings of the gentlest breeze and allow me to see what the eagle sees from his vantage point high in the sky.
Help break away from the grasp of regret.
I find that grace imparts when gratefulness flows.
Lead me toward peace of mind.

‘What a treat to ‘meet’ an old ‘friend’ with such a wonderful quote.
Gratefulness let’s go of expectations- let’s go of everything and allows gratitude in.
What would gratefulness do? Gratefulness will help me appreciate the simplest things we so easily take for granted.
Gratefulness makes me happy. Being grateful adds sunshine, laughter, happy to my day. Even on my most trying, difficult days adding gratefulness to it makes it all so much better.
Happy Saturday All. Make it a grateful day. 🙂❤️🙏🌟
