I hope this note finds you well. Here are 4 Tips I found have helped me to create a more pleasant Thanksgiving Holiday. It takes a little effort, however the outcome is amazing! Enjoy…
Tip #1 Be extra kind to yourself, be gentle, be easy. This year be aware of being more of a silent observer. Listen more and be open to all possibilities !
“The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.”
Tip #2 Make a commitment, and if possible, ask your family and guests not to discuss politics this Thanksgiving Day. If politics are being discussed, gently ask with a kind, loving, and gentle smile to change the topic.
Remember: Everyone is doing the best they can. There is no need to defend your point of view, be open to all points of view. It’s fine to have your point of view, you just don’t need to defend it.
“Love is the Bridge that connects us all.”
Tip #3 In the morning, when you wake up take 2 or 3 minutes with your eyes softly closed and think of the things you are grateful for and why.
Later in the day when sitting around the table, ask each person to share one thing they are grateful for and why.
“Gratitude is one of the most powerful gifts to nourish your body, mind and soul.”
Tip #4 Most important:Today take a few minutes to call a loved one that you know may be grieving due to a loss, an illness, or a difficult major life change. Let them know you are thinking of them and that you are here for them this Holiday Season.
“The most precious gifts you can give to someone are Love, Attention, Affection, Appreciation and your Time.”
Thanksgiving is a nice holiday for many people across the nation to celebrate. It is also a challenging time for those who are going through a difficult time. Let us take a moment to reach out to a loved one today.
Thanksgiving means “Giving Thanks.” Being thankful nourishes our body, mind and soul, making us feel better.
“In a World where we can be Something….Be Kind.”
Think of the things that bring you joy and make a point to incorporate them this weekend. You have all brought me so much joy. I want to thank all of you for your love and kindness this past year. When I count my blessings, I count all of you twice.
Wishing you a
Peaceful and Harmonious Thanksgiving Day!
Namaste – Lots of Love and Hugs,
