As most of you know, I’m currently on sabbatical on the swamp world of Dagobah, one of the purest places in the galaxy. Here amid Dagobah’s abundant life, I’ve sequestered myself from the world of social media, narcissism, and virtual signaling – to commune and speak with the spirits of Qui-Gon Jinn and Yoda – pondering the connections between the living and the Force. Back in the homeland of my birth, this is the day of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Thanksgiving is a day set aside every year since the Pilgrims came to America, to celebrate and give thanks for the blessings in life. So, I’m sending you this postcard to thank you for being part of my journey along the way. Even though I’ve stepped back from the blogs, newsletters, and podcasts, please know you are in my thoughts daily. I feel tremendous gratitude for the interactions we’ve shared together on our journey of challenge, adventure, and growth.
Holidays can be a sad time for many. If you are one of them, please accept this postcard as a digital hug from me, with hope that the day lands gently for you.
Let us be grateful for those we have lost, knowing their memories are a blessing.
Let us be grateful for struggle, knowing there is great beauty in it.
Let us be grateful for the wars in the world, knowing they can teach us the path toward peace.
Let us be grateful for our challenges, knowing they are our steppingstones to greatness.
Let us be grateful for death, knowing that it teaches us how to live.
Please celebrate this holiday (whether it’s Thanksgiving where you live, or simply another amazing weekday) as the day it and every day were meant to be. Another opportunity to rejoice in gratitude.
