GratiTuesday – May 15th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday, EveryOne! Another path to connecting with gratitude is through our experience of the present moment; a.k.a. living in the NOW. Consider checking out The Mindful Word and Molly Murphy’s essay, “How Living in the Present Moment Triggers Gratitude”: https://www.themindfulword.org/2015/grateful-now-present-moment-gratitude/ So each Tuesday, we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site.

I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: _____________________
