Nneka over at Balanced Life Center has started 2007’s Season of Gratitude and I’m jumping in!

Today I’m grateful that:




  • The Atlantic Hurricane season has been uneventful in my area. Living in Southern Florida, this is big.
  • There aren’t any reports about people taking shelter from fires in Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, as there were at the time of Hurricane Katrina.
  • There’s been only one reported death from these fires.
  • My home and my son are safe.
  • Al Gore has stimulated such widespread awareness of global warming and climate change.
  • While the fires in So. Calif. may in part be nature rebalancing itself, we’re also informed and empowered to approach our relationship with nature in an entirely new and sustainable way.
  • CNN is airing Planet in Peril, today 10/23 and Wed 10/24 at 9 p.m. ET. Although I’m not a major news outlet consumer, it’s significant that the concerns are being mainstreamed and will reach a huge audience. (There are many resources on CNN’s site so make sure you visit.)
  • I have the support of all my readers, clients and students.
  • Blogging makes a difference and the Internet has power.
Grateful despite the news
