It’s really quite remarkable how collaboration and open communication can bring about positive shifts in the world.  In the past couple of weeks, a series of connections and opportunities have opened up that have left me in awe over how perfect the universe can be with orchestrating an intended outcome.

Last week, I wrote about Inviting Collaboration Through Social Media, and clearly the message resonated, as it was shared on Facebook more than any post I’ve ever written. It feels amazing to work with other people and collaborate on a shared vision, doesn’t it?

Today, I’m grateful for the opportunities to connect and collaborate with some incredible people and organizations that are making big things happen around the world.

Justin Runyon WDSFor instance, just this month, I’ve had a chance to collaborate with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, Earthrace Conservation and Pete Bethune, the Planeteer movement, Judi Knight, Southern Green Industries, Simone Lipscomb, ISF_KidsArmy, ifPeople, Richard Leslie, the Know Better Effect, Sarah Robinson, Hub Atlanta, Southeast Green, Sierra Club, and a long list of amazing people I met through the World Domination Summit in Portland 3 weeks ago.

That’s a pretty nice list of people and organizations to collaborate with, don’t you think? A couple of weeks ago when I decided to put this weekly gratitude post into action, I didn’t know exactly how it would unfold.  It’s a simple ritual, really, but one that I’m quite happy to implement.

Thank you to everyone on the list above, you for reading this, and all the great people out there connecting and sharing in order to make this a better world to live in.

What are you grateful for today? Feel free to share in the comments below.
