Gratitude. This is the grateful holiday right? Always wondered why it took until thanksgiving for people to express their gratitude for eachother ....or that one text "hey stranger...Happy Thanksgiving"...
I've emotionally detached from holidays anyway due to my father's passing. But about 2 years ago I declared to celebrate Thanksgiving on a daily basis. Whether through my yoga practice , being grateful for my existence, for my breathe, for my mother's laugh, for my brother's smile...ofcourse I have days I'm too low for gratitude ... weeks when my appreciation needs nourishment ...but what continues to uplift my spirit is INTENTION. Positive reinforcement . Literally forcing myself to close my eyes....consciously breathing...and being thankful for each breathe .
Take this time to...yes....be thankful for this break...your holiday...the food! Oh the FOOD ! ...meditate on truly feeling gratitude and the rate it grows within...expanding in the without ... nourishment of the mind,body,soul....take care .. I'm sleepy now lol
But I'm forever grateful for YOU. Whether or not you're family,a "friend"...or simply my social media acquaintance. It is US who continue to "follow" eachother...uplifting & supporting ...that makes this very specific world of Internet-community go round #latenightthoughts #gratitude
