Cherish the Gift of YOU

This month’s blog post is an important reminder. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a beautiful holiday and, if not, may you be firmly connected to every little thing you feel grateful for in your life. 

We’re celebrating Thanksgiving this week – the holiday of gratitude that invites us to connect with and appreciate the abundance in our lives. As I took a shower this morning, I thought about some of the things I feel grateful for - hot water, a window in my bathroom with a beautiful view, a cat that makes me smile every single day, and a husband who cares for me deeply. 

As I continued to shower, I considered other things to feel thankful for - inner things that often get overlooked.  I'm thankful for my commitment to personal growth, for example, the discipline that keeps me practicing good self-care, and the courage to make difficult choices in spite of the anxiety or guilt I might feel.

We all have inner qualities or ways of being that serve us (and others) and they deserve to be acknowledged and appreciated, too.  So, this month, I invite you to take a few moments to do the exercise in the Take Action Challenge below. You'll be so grateful you did.

Take Action Challenge

Stop right now and take out a piece of paper and pen. Think about the ways in which you've changed and grown over this past year. How do you approach life differently - in a way that honors you and your relationships?  What kind of commitment have you made to your own personal growth?  What behaviors have you let go of and what new habits have you developed to keep your self-care in check? Write them all down! 

Be grateful for these inner gifts - they are the fuel that will sustain you and carry you through your amazing life.

    This year I have gone through a divorce but it has shown me how strong I am and has given me a chance to truly love who I am and begin a new life. I have been inspired to start a blog for divorced women and offer the same kind of encouragement that helped me through this challenging time.
