Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos – the trees, the clouds, everything. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I don’t know about you, but I generally don’t experience a welling up of gratitude while I, sweating it out in the gym, or saying no to that tempting piece of pie. Oh pie how I love you. But I do feel a sense of control and contribution after a workout or being able to fit in my pants. How interesting to expand this notion beyond the self, to the world- that to keep yourself healthy or to make yourself healthier you are honoring the divine that connects all of the world. I’ll try to hand on to that thought the next time I am grumbling about an other set of 10.
