When you search for dictionary definitions of grace you'll find: "elegance or refinement; courteous goodwill; quality of moving in a smooth, relaxed and attractive way" and many more. But there's something peculiar about grace that prompted me to go further and look at it from a different perspective - the word of God.
There's something profound about giving thanks. It's like an outpouring, a celebration of goodness, a restoration of peace. It's the most beautiful way of expressing the acknowledgment and appreciation for someone or something. Some people give thanks daily, some only on special occasions, sadly others don't even know what to be thankful for.
There are moments where it feels like you're running and running but life still seems to outrun you. You run and think you're finally making progress, maybe even running in step with life and then you tell yourself: "Puh, let me just take a minute to breathe.

I was once asked in a job interview: "What motivates you or what do you do to stay positive? Do you just get up in the morning and the sun is shining and yeah you are happy?"

In fact, I have never had a negative experience without something positive attached to it." And that is really my truth.
