Got Gratitude?

Break out the cornucopia and give some thanks y’all! In the spirit of giving thanks and turkey dinners, I give you some of my all time favorite gratitude goodies. BTW - Did you know that those who feel the least happy actually benefit the most from getting their gratitude on? You don’t have to be on top of the world to think of things that make your heart happy. You just have to practice.

We Laughed. We Cried.

In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) laughter gets you unstuck and moves stagnant liver qi. In other words, if you’re wound tight or dealing with stress it’s a great release of tension and gets things circulating again.


What about crying you ask? Don’t get me started on crying. Can I list crying as a hobby? I love a good tear jerker. Those who have attended my retreats have lovingly reminded me, “It’s not a success until somebody cries!” Thankfully I’ve usually got that covered.  

Book Picks.

I’m always reading 2 or 3 books at a time. Here are a few that I love.

Crazy Busy.

We used to have a lot more downtime. The Sabbath was holy. Weekends were mellow. Nighttime was for sleeping. Now we go non-stop. Jam-packed weekends follow overtime-filled weekdays. Nights are scheduled with extracurriculars and lunch hours are places to get things done. “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” and “Just do it” are ways of life. Unfortunately, this doesn’t end well. Nowhere in nature or history does this way of being work out.  

Fact is, we only have so much money in our accounts (resources, vitality, energy, health … I use money to stand in for them all because we all relate to the idea of money, and by account I mean our bodies). When we go, go, go, it means we are spending, spending, spending. And this is not sustainable. We know that when it comes to actual money, but we ignore it when it comes to our health. Exhaustion, distraction, disease, decline and dysfunction are all signs your account is out of balance (to say nothing about stress)! So, what's a person to do?
