Having spent another week in a place in Japan where people are not judged by their financial status but, rather, esteemed for how much they are doing to help others (sounds like a fake place, right???!!!), I can say that my appreciation meter is off the charts.
I have been laying a bit low this week because 1. I got a cold and 2. I am still making sense of all the mindblowing things I’ve absorbed in Utopia.
Today, I am spending the morning counting up my appreciation from my couch where I will have the rare thrill of watching movies, eating salads and getting well. I appreciate this cold for it’s ability to slow me down and allow me to creatively- and nutritionally- re-fill myself.
This morning, I appreciate every challenge I’ve faced in life that springs to mind. I appreciate the way life has stretched me, sometimes kicked me in the stomach and piled on even the greatness in such vast quantities that its been a challenge to keep up with… I appreciate the ability to get bigger. To reconcile karma. To be humble. To be able and willing to experience much more.
So, as I swill tea and hug my puppies, I can’t fail to mention how much I appreciate YOU. Yes, YOU. Massively. Because in the infinite space of the Internet you’ve taken the time to connect with me, and that’s a very big deal to me, I am so grateful. Without you, this is literally just me pitching ideas and images into cyberspace! With you, its an adventure every day!
Today’s idea: commit to Thanksgiving every day. Give thanks every day. 365 days = thanks. Whether its little notes to send to people, a hug, a smile and a thank you… Give it. Its awesome and enlivening to feel grateful. Its alchemical magic to express that gratitude.
