I run this same column every October because of the positive feedback and inspiration it generates.
May you, too, have a grateful perspective this October:
I once knew a man, an artist, in great despair.
We were discussing the concept of gratitude and the idea that when we take time to reflect on what we have to be grateful about, we open the door for gratitude to come rushing into our lives in greater amounts.
One year, during the season of autumn, I asked this individual what he might be grateful for.
One of this man’s greatest attributes is that he speaks thoughtfully. It is an admirable quality.
True to his nature, he took several moments, and then answered, “I am grateful for the color of pumpkins.”
It was one of the nicest sentences I’ve ever heard spoken.
This month, no matter what state of mind you may be experiencing, consider pausing to appreciate the beautiful color of pumpkins.
All good things,
