As we gratefully spiral out, beyond the Self, to co-create with
others, what virtue enhances this syntropic journey, allowing
us to manifest increasingly complex, harmonious structures
that support our dreams and passionate pursuits? … While
gracefully moving through daily challenges, as we change
and re-arrange our reality
In essence: What keeps YOU true to YOU, while
Fortitude.You see, Fortitude, defined as “constancy under difficulty”,
is Gratitude in action. This is what keeps us true to our
selves, following Divine inner virtues, while serving both
Self and our growing family of Gratitude.
Why is fortitude such a powerful gift?Simply this: Fortitude is what turns our hearts to
Gratitude in times of challenge. Fortitude is our
strength, commitment, and dedication to
co-creating a world waking to the power of
Love in Gratitude.
What creates Fortitude? Daily practice.
Hmm … Coincidence our gathering is 42 days in length? 42 = Gratitude Fortitude!

P.S. Here are a few reflections from Beloveds who have
joined us for our 42 day World Gratitude waves …
and gratitude for living each day with awareness; the
sun shining brightly as I prepare my breakfast, the
birds chirping gaily outside my windows and my
heart opening in peaceful rhythm to the beginning
of a new day.
all that has happened that day…I write 5 things
(or more!) for which I am grateful – it’s simple
and yet so profound. Re-viewing the day with
pen in hand brings the good around again and helps
me sleep in peace, for which I am even more grateful.
Thank you for the chance to share. Namaste.
Thank you for the perfectly timed emails.” Mary R. “It’s a snowball effect for me.. the more I am grateful the
more things I find to be grateful for and the more things
happen that just force me into GRATITUDE. It’s a habit…
The world is full of everything.. it’s what you focus on.
Life is really beautiful.. and abundant in things to
appreciate. I consider myself to be an extremely lucky girl
by all the things that I am blessed with. THANKS!”
“It is now [my] practice to be grateful every day for ALL
of life. Whatever appears to be a burden is either a
deferred blessing or a lesson. Who am I to know Spirit’s
intention for me, so I believe in the future and I am grateful.
Each of us has been infinitely blessed – beginning with the
gift of life.
on any particular day, our glass is not half full, it is
99.9% full. More practically, when we feel ungrateful,
we become unhappy and stressed.
“Go Gratitude has reminded me and confirmed that we
are all so very fortunate to have the opportunity to live,
love and learn about life and all of the beauty around us.
I, too, have gratitude every day for my creative energy,
my loved ones, everyday comforts, and opportunities
that are available for me to explore.
“I’m grateful for what you started here, Stacey! And my
practice lately is speaking honest appreciation to at
least one stranger a day. I stop, take just a moment,
and say something I’ve noticed about them. I think
people don’t get enough of that. It feels like planting
seeds in the universe.” ~Patricia
