Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it invites me to pause and reflect on meaning in my life. If I begin each day with a moment of gratitude for my many blessings, the day unfolds with greater ease and sweetness. Some blessings appear readily as positive memories, while others are reluctant, representing challenges in my life. I know that all my experiences weave a rich tapestry of life lived and are worthy of gratitude, for in that moment of recognition, my heart opens to realize abundance – of healthy food, a lovely home, the wonder of teaching yoga, and rich relationships that nourish and support my spirit. When I receive those gifts with grace, a natural joy arises from my heart and fills me to overflowing with love – a state of grace and joy!
So, take a moment this Thanksgiving (and every day) to reflect on the many blessings of your life and feel sweet joy bubble up to blossom as love in your heart.
