yoga thought …..

on March 23, 2013

Just come across this little quote ….. and really like it :

“The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings” ~Henry Ward Beecher

Isn’t it true … look for good and you find it … look for bad … and of course you find that too but just bring yourself down.  Look for the good in people and situations and life feels very different.   Easy to say when things are going well, but much much harder when you’re having a tough time … but of course that’s when the old glass half full pays dividends!

To my yoga colleagues … try a little meditation on finding things to be thankful for …… once you start thinking there are so many …. right now as I type this … the roses in a vase on my desk, the glass of wine on my desk, my lovely cat sitting on the desk …. and that’s just what’s no more than 12 inches away from me!

According to Wikipedia … this is who Henry Ward Beecher is:

Henry Ward Beecher (June 24, 1813 – March 8, 1887) was a prominent Congregationalist clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist, and speaker in the mid to late 19th century. An 1875 adultery trial in which he was accused of having an affair with a married woman was one of the most notorious American trials of the 19th century.[1]
