Great grateful

I read this thoughtful article about being grateful and I thought I'd share a good quote from it (and perhaps entice you to read more about positive psychology):

"Here is what I think: that being grateful for what I have makes me want less. Wanting less makes me consume less. Consuming less makes me treat the planet more kindly. The equation goes, therefore, gratitude equals kindness." -Colin Beavan

GREAT QUOTE!!!

I make a practice to practice gratitude. Generally speaking, I have never been a person who wanted a lot anyway, relative to most people I know, but I still probably want more than I should for my spiritual health and the health of the planet.

Barbara Kingsolver says, wants may be many but real needs are so small they can rattle around in a bucket. (This is a paraphrase).

ME TOO! :-)

(On the other hand, I have a whole blog devoted to complaining, LOL!)
