“If we learn to appreciate more of what we already have, we will find ourselves having more to appreciate.” Michael Angier
Why wait until one day per year to remember what we’re thankful for? That’s 364 days that things/people for granted! Sounds awful, huh?
I agree. So, let’s start a ritual-I encourage my coaching clients to adopt an "attitude of gratitude"…
Many of my clients, mostly boomer women in transition of one kind or another…The Pain of Change, I’m creating a CD of interviews of successful boomer women who’ve experienced transition. It’s hard to remain positive-having a gratitude ritual-writing down 3-5 things you’re grateful for.
So, here are my five things/people I’m thankful for…(there’s lots more, but, I’ll save for aother time.)
My husband & one of my best friends! We have a great relationship-we ride a tandem bicycle & share this passion!
My 2 cats, Fidget & Twinkle-they are companions, a never-ending source of comedy & comfort! And, so cute! Except when one wants to play at 4am!
My best friend & "sister" Jane, her husband, Tim & two daughters-my "nieces" Bekkah & Ale!
My incredible On Purpose Networking for Women group-many members have now become good friends. If you’re local-in Maryland www.onpurposenow.com
My health–it was pretty scary. There was a balance issue–I’m restricted to not driving–and my family/friends had some health scares, all’s ok.
The seasons–how vibrant the leaves are, and how I love the sound of the crunching under–this is your challenge–think of and jot down or talk into a tape recorder, and put down three things that you can acknowledge.
Happy Thanksgiving in the US & Canada, all other lands–Happy weekend!
