Grateful Living

Vor ein paar Tagen, als mir das Lesen in Telegram wieder mal zu viel wurde (das kann mich ganz schön runterziehen, wenn ich mich zu viel mit den brisanten Themen beschäftige) hab ich dann also einige Kanäle gelöscht und sodann die Muße gehabt, spontanen Impulsen nachzugehen! Da hab ich begonnen, in meinem Ordner „Grateful living“ zu stöbern – das ist eine Sammlung von Zitaten (von grateful, einer Internetseite von Bruder David Steindl-Rast) die mich berührt haben; nun hab ich ein paar herausgenommen, die mich grad jetzt besonders angesprochen haben.
