This year, give thanks, for everything.
Let the tingle of gratitude move into the bones of your body, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. With each beat of your heart,”Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Dance for the joy, for the love, for the freedom, for the food in your belly, for the beating hearts of the beings that surround you.
Sing for the sorrows, for the heartbreak, for the sadness you can’t seem to shake, for the losses, for all those faces that no longer exist in this realm.
Speak with words that come straight from your heart, be honest, be kind, be love.
When you wrap your arms around your friends, lovers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cats, dogs or hamsters, pause for a moment and allow your hearts to beat, together, for that moment, just once (maybe twice).
Pause, when you can, to listen to the laughter that surrounds you (even if you are alone and it’s your own); listen and hear it, as gospel, as truth.
Know that everything you are, everything you have, everything that you are supposed to be, is you.
