Do you know what is harder to bear than the reverses of fortune? It is the baseness, the hideous ingratitude of some.— Napoleon (Image licensed by Penn Wealth)
No matter our circumstances or any reversals of fortune we are facing, holding a deep gratitude for all that we have and an appreciation of the beauty which surrounds us will make the journey so much more enjoyable. Brooding saps us of strength and constrains our abilities. Gratitude frees our mind so that we can move forward through any environment with alacrity.
