Hey hey- how is your week unfolding? Things have been pretty good here…took the yoga, taught the yoga. Seems good to me And I’m getting a massage on Friday. So excited! To make it better- I have a gift card.
So I know you can’t see in this picture- but in the background on the monument- they already have the Christmas lights strung up!!!! Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet! Which brings me to my next topic.
Since it’s November and Thanksgiving and the holidays are approaching- we all take time to think about what we are thankful for. I asked around on my Facebook and twitter page what people were thankful for right now. Too many of your talked about my yoga class! Thank you but that’s not what I was fishing for lol.
Here’s some responses:
Brittany E- possibility
Sara V- (Yoga) Teacher training
Doug P- My new lil’ Baby Girl (who looks like her daddy!!)
Joan S- supportive friends
Lisa G- My husband
Samantha M- I am thankful for choice. No matter what, I always always always get to choose how I think about something or someone.
Lisa S- Salamanders
Megan F- hugs and avocados
Michelle K- I’m thankful for my health, daughter, and my friends
Meg E- I am thankful for my health and the opportunity to pursue my bliss! And of course love and family and friends!!
Kameron- My sisters!!! All of them, we balance each other
Ok and the other crazy responses were (and I am sparing you some of the inside jokes with my college friends)
Lindsay F- The ab workouts in your class!
Kim G- For my fav yoga teacher!
CJ W- Crow pose!
Lol- you guys are ridiculous!
But anyways- I just want to point out that even when it’s not Thanksgiving, that you take time every day to find something to be thankful for!
Sadly one of my friends dad’s has passed away this week and even though he had been ill for sometime, it is still very upsetting. But more than that, it’s a reminded to cherish what you have, your life, and the people you love.
How easily we can forget how precious life is!
So long as we can remember, we’ve just been here, being alive.
Unlike other things for which we have a good comparison–
black to white, day to night, good to bad–
we are so immersed in life that we can see it
only in the context of itself.
We don’t see life as compared to anything,
to not-being, for example, to never having been born.
Life just is. But life itself is a gift.
It’s a compliment just being born:
to feel, breathe, think, play, dance, sing,
work, make love, for this particular lifetime.
Today, let’s give thanks for life.
For life itself. For simply being born!
