To keep centered and the focus away from the food and the stress that may come with bigger feasts, fostering a gratitude practice is a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Giving Thanks of course!
I am grateful for.....
- A supportive family-no matter how many miles away they are
- An amazing boyfriend, who is there when I succeed, and also when i fail and tears follow
- Wonderful friends, friends whom i've known since the womb and friends i just met. Who pick up the phone, meet me for coffee, and share french fries with me.
- Food. delicious. nourishing, energizing food.
- Boston. Love that dirty water. The people. the place. i leave. i come back.
- a strong body. That moves me through my day. puts up with stress. sleeps well and endures workouts.
- the most loveable snuggly pup. and his step-sister- a sassy cat.
- work i love. that i get excited about every morning about the to do list that lies in front of me.
- having a job. period.
- sparkles and good music
- my hair
- pumpkin. everything.
- living close to an airport. where i don;t have to drive 6 hours to get away
- WINTER! snow is coming! and with that skiing and warm fires
- blogs, twitter facebook and instagram. so i can stay connected to you!
i recommend doing this on the regular. maybe it's every Monday night. or saturday morning. Journal it. Live it. Love it.
Have a Healthy, Happy Holiday!
