...and connecting to the Natural World wherever you are!

Welcome to the waning days of autumn...

to the days getting closer to winter and to the celebrations that take place during this dark time of year.  Last month I shared with you 3 foundational points that can aid anyone in developing a deeper relationship to the natural world and the Nature of self.
 
This month I would like to introduce to you the Second Point:  
Attitude: An Attitude of Gratitude/ Appreciation
Charles R. Swindoll  said “…I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.... we are in charge of our attitudes…”

We appear to be in a nebulous time right now, a season of the unknown. I wonder, how does our attitude affect each moment, each outcome. How can an Attitude of Gratitude affect our children in our daily lives, in troubled moments.

Last month I offered a simple Welcoming game to play with self or with your children.  This month I wish to offer a Story to expand on this point of Attitude: An Attitude of Gratitude/Appreciation.

Below you will see the link to hear this short tale. I learned it from Tony Ten Fingers, a Lakota Sioux born and raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation and I was given special permission to share it. May it be of inspiration to you. I know it has been so many times for myself.

Enjoy!
– Wendolyn
