Imagine myself unknowing. And in this letting go of the need to know, the sheer terror of not having the answer before the question is even asked, lies wonder, magic, transcendence. Such is the nature of partnership when linked with gratitude.

So now I know that Fred fed the homeless in Los Angeles yesterday and my college roommate Sheryl is sorry, even though she apologized 30 years ago, that Linda misses me, that Jo supports me, that my heart is broken open, and it is only day two!

This umbrella of gratitude is already building upon itself with fierce love. It’s that simple really. In my unknowing, heart broken open, vulnerable, my soft center revealed, is the nectar of my heart, the sweetness of me connecting with the sweetness of others; all of us united by the grace received in moments of giving  and being given back. Such is the reciprocal nature, abundant beauty, joy-making of gratitude.

Bring it on, I say!

There is so much more that will be revealed. Join us on this journey, post your comments, help create the Kula, have some fun!  And let gratitude continue to build upon itself over and over and over again.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
