Letting Go Of Gratitude

Letting Go Of Gratitude

Who's got time for that s***?

Last Tuesday I posted this picture to Instagram.

I was on the early train from home in Ballarat to the St Kilda Rd office of a client.

I was due to deliver a four hour training course. By its completion I'd clock up 25 hours of face to face facilitation in a week, and close to 1000 km of travel.

With an hour to my destination, I did not want to go.

When we wake to news of terror and tragedy as we did on the weekend we have a choice in how we respond.  We can be consumed by fear and anger; horrified by what has transpired and immobilised by the shared grief of millions. This is a natural response.

Or we can choose hope and gratitude.  

Neither will change the situation in France, Beirut or Baghdad.  Neither will wind back the clock to find another path, a parallel course in which everyone gets home safely.
