Three Things I’m Thankful For

If you must look back, do so forgivingly. 

If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. 

However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present…


-Maya Angelou

Thanksgiving is upon us…quite literally, a day devoted to giving thanks. This act of expression is so undervalued in our society of “do, do, do” that it’s often overlooked. But being grateful in the moment is a powerful thing – a core virtue from which love and contentment flow.

This week you may be busily preparing your home and lots of good food for a Thanksgiving feast. (Is my Nourishing Pumpkin Pie on your menu?)

Or you might express your gratitude by helping others, this holiday being a wonderful opportunity to give to those in greater need.

Whatever the case, let’s all take some time this week to reflect on what we have in a spirit of thankfulness.

Here are three things I’m thankful for today.

I’m thankful for my practice. It’s helped me find my purpose and my passion.

I’m thankful for my patients who teach me and enrich my life every day.

I’m thankful for my family that keeps me grounded and happy!

Do you have any traditions for expressing gratitude on Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear!
