Giving Thanks

I love the idea of a national day of gratitude, and for that reason, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays.

Although today is an American tradition, the essence of the day is universally relevant. Everyone has something in their life to be grateful for – friends, family, health, career, financial abundance, food, shelter, clothing, transportation, new beginnings, new experiences, life lessons – just to name a few.

Thank you for being a part of my journey and allowing me to be a part of yours.

Autumn: Release/Let Go

PowerPoint PresentationEach season brings gifts and opportunities for growth as we journey through the year.

Autumn is a season of reflection, thanksgiving, completion, and letting go of what no longer serves you so that you can fully embrace the new year.

I invite you to begin the process of bringing this year to a close by reflecting on the year relative to your goals. Celebrate what you have accomplished to date and make a plan, if you don’t already have one, to complete what needs to be completed by the end of the year.

Give thanks for your blessings as a part of this process. If you keep a gratitude journal, take time to review what you have captured over the course of the year and how your life has changed as a result of your blessings. If you don’t have a regular gratitude practice, consider starting a daily practice of writing 3-5 things you consider gifts, blessings or life lessons in a journal or notebook.

Set aside 15-20 minutes of silence each day in coming weeks to explore what you need to release so that you can fully embrace the new year. Begin your quiet time by asking what is complete and ready to be released. Expect that you will receive guidance. When you ask a question in the context of sacred time, it is no longer a simple question. It is an invocation for revelation. Capture your guidance in a notebook or journal and move into action with confidence that you are being guided to your highest good.

Autumn is a wonderful time to clear clutter on every level in preparation for the new year and new opportunities. Mindfully let go of things that no longer bring you joy or serve your highest good.

Start setting yourself up for an amazing new year now (yes, now! 🙂 ).

Questions for reflection

  • What have I accomplished this year?
  • What didn’t I accomplish that I really wanted to? Why?
  • Who or what has been my greatest blessing? Why?
  • What is complete in my life and ready to be released so that I can embrace the next phase of my journey?
    • Assess all areas of your life
  • How can I begin releasing what is complete with gratitude and love?
    • Trust your inner guidance

Daily Gratitude

Gratitude is the key to creating a joy-filled and abundant life. Giving heartfelt thanks for everything that has been provided to you will increase your appreciation for your life and help you cultivate a mind-set of abundance that will take root and blossom in your life.

Create a daily ritual that will enable you to express gratitude for your life. You may want to consider a daily practice of writing 3-5 things you consider gifts, blessings, or life lessons in a journal or notebook. Try to include something new each day.

Thirty-Day Challenge:

Begin and end each day in gratitude.  It will transform the way you experience your day and your life.
