    Thanks Ali for sharing this. It is the middle of the night in Australia & I just jumped on the computer to try & distract my mind from all the negative, irrational & sad thoughts & emotions swirling there right now. Your blog is always my first jumping point & to find this right now seems serendipitous. Even though this actually made me cry I am definately feeling like I can go back to bed (& hopefully sleep) and wake up to a new day feeling more positive and grateful for the many, many blessings I do have in my life. As always a little perspective goes a long way.

    Thank you so much for sharing this, I needed it badly. Have been behaving agitated towards my girls and husband the past week. And this shook me up, made me cry, made me soften up again. I’m so grateful for you sharing this wonderful video! Thank you, Marlies

    “when you explore you get more imagination than you already had…the path it could lead you to a beach…and it could be beautiful.”

    My favorite part every time I’ve watched this.

    Thank you.

    So poignant! So true. Right now I am waiting on an MRI, following an abmormal mammogram and ultrasound. I don’t know what tomorrow holds…but I do know that today is a gift I can’t take for granted. I am reminded again to be grateful for each day! Thank you for sharing this. I am definitely going to share it as well.

    Oh, my goodness. I had just said that when he said “People say Oh My God”. LOL I try not to say that phrase because usually it’s not appropriate but I have to agree, it probably was that time! Thanks so much Ali. Lovely gift for a Monday.

    Thank you Ali for sharing this. It made me really stop and think, especially now. The teachers in my province are on strike, and I spent my day walking outside in -23 (I live in Northern BC), thinking about and fixating on unpleasant things. This will help me get through the next 2 days of strike and give me something positive to focus on. Thanks again.

    This past weekend we lost 4 patients that frequented our cardiology office. One was a 44 year old mother-to-be. The others, wonderfully old individuals that lived well past their prime. I am so very grateful to have know and served each one individually and although my heart is breaking for a young mother and old folk that were like grandparents I am thankful for the time we had together. This link reminds me that these people have helped to weave the fabric of what is MY life. May I always remember to be grateful for those individuals I have come to know and those I will meet tomorrow.

    In loving memory of Carol Leigh, Norma, Katherine and uncle Bob.

    Thanks for sharing this Ali!

    My husband and I just watched it…thank you so much for sharing. I needed this reminder of the blessing and gift of life. We are so blessed and yet it seems like we’re always trying to get something done on our list or looking ahead, instead of just stopping to really “live in the moment” and allow ourselves to be a part of the beauty that surrounds us.

    This is so ironic! I just saw this yesterday for the first time. It’s so cool how certain things converge. It is truly inspiring. I especially love the little girl wanting to go deeper in her creativity and imagination. Thanks for being my second layer of gratitude.
