Pre-Thanksgiving Trip to the Mountains
Happy "Almost" American Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is very much on my mind this week – it’s one of my very favorite holidays. I love love the Autumn season, and even more: I love love love the idea of dedicating an entire day to Gratitude and Giving Thanks.
The idea behind the holiday is like gold – the value of being in gratitude of taking in deeply and appreciating all we have, the fact that this simple practice could lead to huge success and joy.
Somehow, sadly, Thanksgiving has mostly turned into an opportunity to start shopping early for December holidays, to fret over time spent with extended family members, and to overeat.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. And that’s where the Gratitude Project comes in! Join me in making Thanksgiving more than just about getting a jumpstart on shopping. We are already hundreds strong in this movement – it’s happening TODAY, and there’s still time to join: http://soulfulcoach.com/gratitude2012.php
I got my gratitude celebrations started very early this year with a weekend trip to Blowing Rock, NC. The Blue Ridge Mountains are absolutely beautiful!!!! Jon, Penina and I did a lot of hiking, connecting with Mama Earth, and reveling in the turn of the season.
