Gratitude requires us to slow down, to pause, and to reflect. In the silence, even if it only lasts a moment, we can recognize the miracle of our life. We connect with our essence when we pause. So today take a moment to pause in gratitude. As you dedicate 5 minutes to this exercise, allow yourself to be completely present, completely here now. Begin by breathing deeply and settling into your chair. Close your eyes and feel the miracle of life.

As you silently reflect, choose one of the following phrases and for 5 minutes (and throughout the day) breathe deeply, close your eyes and repeat your phrase.


“Thank you”   “I am so blessed”

“My life is a miracle”


“I am so grateful for my family”   “Asante”     “There is so much to be grateful for, Thank You”

“Grazie”     “Merci”


“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look at the stars. ”   ~ Henry Van Dyke
