Thanks Maria – How wonderful that you can find yourself inspiration and support for just what you need at this time in your life. May you always find it here, and everywhere you seek. Grateful to serve. K
Deanne – I LOVE this question. Thank you for asking. I do have many years at the helm of nonprofits whose fiscal health is a primary day-to-day concern. I have learned that holding this responsibility gratefully, bowing to the mission and trusting it to do ITS work in the world, and seeing fundraising as a core expression of organizational values as well as a spiritual practice – these all help me greatly.

Deanne – I LOVE this question. Thank you for asking. I do have many years at the helm of nonprofits whose fiscal health is a primary day-to-day concern. I have learned that holding this responsibility gratefully, bowing to the mission and trusting it to do ITS work in the world, and seeing fundraising as a core expression of organizational values as well as a spiritual practice – these all help me greatly. It is always the places where gratefulness is seemingly in tension with aspects of our lives that we have to find meaningful, new, creative pathways, practices, and paradigms. This is how we live our best lives, deepen a grateful orientation, and also help to heal the world! Thanks for being so awake to possibility. Please stay in touch – K
Mary Anne – What a stunningly beautiful reflection you have offered us. Thank you so much for your awareness, longings and sharing. Please stay connected. We are in this together. K
Dear Is – Thank you for knowing that a grateful heart is a happy heart. And I am so glad that you follow the flow of your life and share your joy with the world! Thank you for sharing it with us. K
Dear Sheila – Thank you for your humility and faith-filled life. Letting go reinforces our trust and love for life. How wonderful not to have to steer the ship all the time. You are a blessing. K
Dear Carol – Indeed, there is much we can learn from letting go and seeing what happens when we allow life to be “trustworthy,” allowing ourselves to be both trustworthy and trusting. The ripple effects of this exploration are endless. Blessings on your move and new home. Thanks for staying connected, no matter where you are! K
Dear Sky – This is one of my favorite quotes and one that I work to remember in my daily activities. Thank you for sharing it. Indeed, as the needs of the world only seem to escalate, it seems especially important to be intentional and wholehearted in our responses, rather than following the impulse to be frenetic. Thanks for your resonance with the message we are sharing…
Thank you for sharing this beautiful reflection, Debra, that I know has a place of deep resonance for me and many. Your articulation of the conflict is clear and compelling. May we hold each other and ourselves tenderly on this path.
Thank you Sheila. Your examples of loving the world are beautiful as they are yours! To honor ourselves as we act for greater benefit is so meaningful. Thank you for always lighting the way…
Thank you so much Lisa. This is such a powerful story and tribute to your heart. The world is blessed by your convictions and commitments. We are blessed by your presence here. Stay close.
Thank you Anita for reflecting on what you love. May you love the world with the appreciation of your beloved.
Thank you so much Colette. I love how true that line is when I read it from you. It helps to hear ourselves anew through the meaning our words offer to others. Blessings.
You have blessed our work Susan for resonating with this message and wanting to share it with others! How wonderful that you will make it useful. Thanks for sharing your appreciation with us.
Terima Kasih for sharing your appreciation Maria. You have created an enlightening ripple already, and I am so glad that you find that gratefulness beautifully enhances your life. Please stay with it, and stay connected. Blessings.
Tom – Thank you so much. As you say, the hope is that the invitation to a more grateful perspective always lands in our lives in timely ways. And when would it ever be untimely for such an invitation?! Wishing you much beauty too!
Sheila, you always drink at the well of life, love, and learning. And your cup truly spills over with goodness and generosity because of it. You are a beautiful example of living with great fullness of heart. Thank you for sharing your heart here so beautifully and freely.
Thank you so much Is. I hope that this three-step framework brings greater fullness and gratefulness to your life, no matter what terms you use or how you use it. Blessings to you.
Michele – Welcome to the island of hope that gratefulness offers many of us! There is so much richness on this island, and we are glad that you are finding sanctuary here for your life. And please do not chastise yourself for “failing” at practices. If each day, we can remember to be grateful one moment, one circumstance more than the day before, we are succeeding. May your aspirations be gentle, and may you offer yourself comfort yourself on the path as you would comfort others.
Is – You are so right. The paradoxes of life bring energy and deep learning if we make space for them, instead of wanting everything to be one thing or another. May your wisdom bring you sweet peace in the midst of it all.
Linda – I am so glad to be able to share my perspectives and have them serve you.. What a huge blessing. Thank you for bringing joy to my heart.
