The Truth I Discovered About Gratefulness


I am feeling rather grateful and optimistic today. Monday marking the beginning of a beautiful week ahead and the first day of summer! Oh and the sun is shining! How often does that happen here in Newfoundland? Not often enough let me tell you.

But it is today!

I wanted to talk a little about gratitude today.

The importance of being grateful in life for my health, family and friends was instilled in me from a young age.

However the real truth is… until recently I felt that gratefulness was some sort of obligation. A feeling expressed as a mandatory thank you to the universe for the things I have in my life.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
