Time again for gratitude

So many wise ones say you need gratitude to be happy.  I find it hard to be happy during the cold  lonely winters in Calgary.  So, again I come to gratitude:

~ My job stresses me out - I'm happy to have a job (although I know simply having a well-paying job is not everything
~ Most mornings I listen to the World BBC News and often cry

Take a deep breath.

Fill up with life,
and open
To the eternal.
the Connector.
the Sustainer.
the Creator.
Blessed Love -
filling you up,
and you are Light
as a feather,
and everything else
made up of Light.

Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can—
At all times, Dare to be!
