Gratitude and desire - are they partners or enemies in your world? How do you choose to practice each in your life OR do you only honor one?

Can you really practice both gratitude AND desire?  

Don't they conflict?


Gratitude is the expression of thanks for all the good in your life. Big things, little things, happy events and even moments that hurt all change and, hopefully, awaken you to life and to your world as it unfolds.

Desire, on the other hand, names things, people, and events not yet in your life that you feel would allow you to enjoy every day more, make each happening offer a greater impact on your happiness and well being.

Do those two forces face off?

Is it okay to want both in your life? Does the expression of desire, and, moreso, honoring those desires, make you less grateful or less valuable to your  family, friends, and community?

Today I explore what really makes a difference, propelling your life in the direction you know you truly want to go.
