Wallowing in Gratitude

Thoughts held in mind, produce in kind. 

And since we know that what we attract what we most think about, we also know that giving thanks produces yet more to be thankful for.  It creates a vicious cycle of prosperity and abundance.  Here in the United States of America, today is the Thanksgiving holiday.  It’s a day we’ve set aside every year since the Pilgrims came over, to celebrate and give thanks for the blessings in our life.

Yet holidays can be a sad time for many.  If you are one of them, please accept this post as a digital hug from me, with wishes that the day lands gently for you. Personally, the number of family members I have to celebrate with is getting smaller as time unfurls.  I discovered my father is dead, and although I never met him, it was a very weird, melancholy feeling to learn the news.  I no longer have a grandmother or grandfather left to call, and my nieces and nephews aren’t popping out enough babies yet to fill the gap.  I’ve buried too many people dear to me, way too early.  As probably have you.

But Thanksgiving is not a day to focus on what we don’t have.  (No day really is.)  It’s a day to be grateful for what we have. 

We can take a moment and remember those that are no longer with us.  But instead of sadness for the loss, let’s remember the magic of the moments we had with them, and honor them by living today, bold, out loud, and in living color.  I hope you’ll choose to celebrate this holiday (whether it’s Thanksgiving where you live, or simply another amazing Thursday) as the day it and every day was meant to be: wallowing in gratitude.

Right now, I’m wallowing in gratitude for:

That’s just a brief taste of what I’m wallowing in gratitude for today.  Which begs the question…

What are you wallowing in gratitude for today?

Peace,
