This week’s newsletter is an important reminder from last year. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a beautiful holiday and, if not, may you be firmly connected to every little thing you feel grateful for in your life.
This week we celebrate Thanksgiving – the holiday of gratitude that invites us to connect with and appreciate the abundance in our lives. As I took a shower this morning, I thought about some of the things I feel grateful for – hot water, a window in my bathroom with a beautiful view, a cat that makes me smile every single day, and a husband who cares for me deeply.
As I continued to shower, I considered other things to feel thankful for – inner things that often get overlooked. I’m thankful for my commitment to personal growth, for example, the discipline that keeps me practicing good self-care, and the courage to make difficult choices in spite of the anxiety or guilt I might feel.
We all have inner qualities or ways of being that serve us (and others) and they deserve to be acknowledged and appreciated, too. So, this week, I invite you to take a few moments to do the exercise in the Take Action Challenge below. You’ll be so grateful you did .
Take Action Challenge
Stop and take out a piece of paper and pen and think about the ways in which you’ve changed and grown over this past year. How do you approach life differently – in a way that honors you and your relationships? What kind of commitment have you made to your own personal growth? What behaviors have you let go of and what new habits have you developed to keep your self-care in check?
Be grateful for these inner gifts – they are the fuel that will sustain you and carry you through your amazing life.
I never tire of these videos – souls touching souls. Thanks, Giuliana! You can find it here.
