"Every moment is a given moment. Every moment is a gift. We have not bought it, we have not earned it. It is simply given to us. And with this moment is given to us opportunity."
—Brother David Steindl-Rast

It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow here in America, and we’re thankful for so many things: sweet potatoes, freshly baked cookies, puppy gifs, not missing our buses home, and, of course, YOU, our amazing Tumblr followers.
So we’re signing off for the holidays with a little gem from TED — Want to be happy? Be grateful — a lovely reflection on life, gratitude, and happiness from monk and interfaith scholar Brother David Steindl-Rast. It will give you all the warm fuzzies, no matter where you are.
Above, a quote from the TED Blog’s Q&A with Brother David, which you can check out here.
