Freedom and Confidence – Gratitude

It seems providential that I began to structure this post on Thanksgiving day; a holiday of collective thankfulness. Our personal liberation flows through our commitment to one another, and to gather during these moments is to honor the commitment.

This is a rather personal post as I reflect on what gratitude means to my own value of freedom and strength of confidence.

For me, freedom is the release from judgmental bondage and an organic flow of voice. When voice flows freely, it is natural to applaud the sequential acts of experience. Allowing gratitude to flow in and through the moments of each day has brought freedom to the forefront of giving from the best of who I am. It is in this flow that my confidence is made ever stronger; as obligation meets with the desire to return thanks and glorify the source of good.

Gratitude makes me stronger. Freedom is nourished by the acknowledgement of specific blessings in my life. A litany of gratitude helps me remain aware of life as good things gather and unfold. And the confidence needed for traveling the path is increased by consciously consistent praise for every event and connection. As Father Green would say, “Blessing the wind and wave.”

  1. I love the idea of “consciously consistent praise for every event and connection. To be able to express gratitude not only for the good things that happen, but also for the so-called “bad” stretches us to see how our experiences have shaped us. Thank YOU, Jeff, for reminding us of the importance of all sorts of gratitude.
