Nature. Beauty. Gratitude

Try watching this if you’re feeling uninspired, or a bit sad, or grumpy or anything short of how you want to be feeling.

(Nature. Beauty. Gratitude by Louie Schwartzberg and David Steindl-Rast: http://www.ted.com/talks/louie_schwartzberg_nature_beauty_gratitude.html)

‘Beauty and seduction are natures tools for survival, because we protect what we fall in love with. It opens our hearts and make us realise we are a part of nature, and we’re not separate from it.’

‘You think this is just another day in your life. It’s not just another day. It’s the one day that is given to you today. It’s given to you, its a gift. It’s the only gift that you have right now and the only appropriate response is gratefulness. If you do nothing else but to cultivate that response to the great gift that this unique day is. If you learn to respond as if it’s the first day of your life, and the very last day. Then you will have spent this day very well. Begin by opening your eyes…look at the sky…’
