Attitude of Gratitude
This holiday season, I promise to do it. I WILL slow down. I WILL let good enough be GOOD ENOUGH. I WILL keep it simple. I WILL enjoy the process. How will I do it? My plan is to take small moments to give thanks for all of the rituals and traditions that are supposed to make the holidays fun and not just a stress-filled month of blurry excess. Above all else, I will pray. I’m not sure to whom, yet, but I feel the need to let some higher power know that I am grateful. I want to share my gratitude with my family, but also with the universe. I’ll have to let you know how it’s going. I encourage you to do the same. Slow down, keep it simple, savor and be grateful for every bite. Let this be your time. Treat yourself well.
