Motivation Monday: Gratitude – by Louie Schwartzberg

In a world with polarizing politics, severe weather, violence, hate, disease, etc,  it’s important to realize that all life, all people, all animals, all plants are important, and precious. We are all in this life together, doing our best to live a good life.  We need to open our hearts and minds to others and be grateful for what we have.

Being open minded to different opinions than your’s, different thoughts than your’s, different beliefs than your’s, unites us and makes us stronger as a human race. United we can accomplish anything.

Being grateful for what we have, for waking up everyday, for having food to eat, for having water to drink, for the blue sky, for the colorful flowers, for the green trees, for the animals helps bring happiness and joy to our lives.

I wanted to share an absolutely beautiful and touching video, which reminds us of the value of life and the importance of being grateful for what we have.

I hope you enjoy it

as much as I did…

Have a great day everyone!

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.


About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
