“Beauty and seduction are nature’s tools for survival because we protect what we fall in love with. It opens our hearts and makes us realize that we are a part of nature and we are not separate from it.” – Louie Schwartzberg

This is one of the most inspiring talks on gratitude and the importance of cultivating gratefulness that I’ve ever seen. It is given by Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning cinematography, director and producer, who has been shooting time-lapses of flowers and the natural world for over 30 years.

The last 4 minutes show his phenomenal short film Gratitude and Happiness, which reminds us of the precious gift of life and the beauty that is all around us.
