unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
I have always liked this commentary from Melody Beattie. The week of Thanksgiving can seem hurried and yet, if we take the time, it can be a wonderful moment to light a candle and pause. Pause to reflect on just ONE aspect of what you might feel grateful for in that present moment. And in that pause, I invite you to come back to the smallest and most subtle ways in which you express gratitude. A smile? A kiss? A movement? A breath? May those small moments be the seeds from which you cultivate your gratitude practice on and off the mat! I am grateful for you. Practice on, yogis.
