'Tis the year for stress levels to go through the roof - and the holiday season can add some extra ouch into the mix.
To gather or not to gather with family and friends, in person or on Zoom, buttons get pushed, triggers get triggered, feelings are on edge.
But a simple act of gratitude provides us with the opportunity to bring attention and appreciation to what is. Being thankful can become a tool for bringing us back into the present moment. It’s an invitation not to follow the mind’s crazy ride into the past and into the future, at 3,000 miles an hour.
Don’t if-only or what-if your life away. Instead, right now, this very moment, allow yourself to recognize the positive and the beautiful. You'll see there are plenty of things to notice.
Terima kasih is Thank You in Indonesian. It also means to receive grace. Every time we give thanks, we also receive grace.
Life is precious. You are precious. You deserve your attention.
Start by paying attention to what's well in your life, what and who makes you feel good. Then take a moment to give thanks. And open yourself to the gift of receiving grace.
