I am so grateful to know this
When that still, small voice inside is whispering — your witness — and when you can hear her whispers, when you can feel the glow of her flame, you can do anything
Even Thanksgiving. Or this year, Thanksgivika — Thanksgiving and Chanukah on the same day. What a great opportunity to practice exquisite self care!
- May your social interactions be a true mirror of what you can and want to give.
- May you remember you can choose how much of anything, and for how long. Including the gifts you give and the food you eat.
- May you lighten up on work this week (if and as you can, and yes, you probably can!), and do some of the other things that feed and nurture your beautiful glowing heart and soul.
They say, in the 12-step rooms, that it’s a three-fold disease: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.
Be easy on your beautiful self.
- Leave time for naps.
- Carry the glow of appreciation with you wherever you go; ground every interaction in that energy and you will own ease.
- Eat and drink and play with gusto, and as if you were feeding and entertaining someone you love and cherish with every single bite (yup this is a moderation secret!).
Make a little time for solitude, for quiet. Balance all the social with a walk in the quiet forest, or by the shore.
I’d love to hear from you! How are you keeping balanced, and keeping your most important commitments as we slide into the holiday season? Let me know; leave a comment.
