Gratitude, Wellness and Spiritual awareness - these are not medications, neither a cure to be called upon in moments of trouble. it is an everyday practice that protects your being from being blind to your ever-present blessings. ~Vishal Singh
"They declare it as a “holiday for all peoples, a day of meditation for all religions, a day of celebration for all humanity, united by knowledge of simultaneously shared emotion, a day when triumph of the spirit can make a world community.” I like the idea that we are united by a common desire for peace, to feel a sense of belonging and that ultimately we matter and can make a difference. Although we may think we are separate, at our core, we really are one.
Some ideas to celebrate the day could include:
- Making a gratitude list, naming all of your blessings.
- Taking note of all of the people you are grateful to have in your life by writing their names and then saying them out loud.
- Contact as many of them as you can either in person, by writing to them or calling them.
- Send thank you notes.
- Say thank you to the person in the mirror.
- Pay it forward by doing a good turn for someone else.
My own gratitude list includes love in all forms, dear family, friends and co-workers, a supportive community, vibrant good health, limitless opportunity, communication skills, all of the blessings showered on me, a safe home, the tools to do my work, including this laptop on which I am typing at the moment, freedom of choice and my feet that gets me where I need to go. An "atty-tood" of gratitude feeds the blessings. Think of practicing gratitude as part of practicing general well-being.
Be active/exercise, eat clean, travel outdoors, clean your house, look at old photographs one by one, get a facial, smile at a grumpy stranger, tell your lover you adore her/his eye-lashes, be there with and for your friends and family, etcetera.
You will be pro-actively polishing what you Love, making them shine
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." ~Melody Beattie
