Just sharing 3 practices you probably already know, but might need a small reminder before Thanksgiving; but before we get started, i wanted to thank you for being part of this community.
I was people watching at a concert the other night. My friend and I were talking about how each of the thousands of people at the concert had their own home, with their unique set of values, beliefs, perceptions on life and life experiences according to their upbringing and circumstances. So when someone annoys you, remember that they are so different than you. Practicing acceptance, respecting our differences, dropping our expectations and judgments and meeting people where they are at, is a true act of KINDNESS!
3. Gratitude- Thanksgiving is all about being grateful, so this is a reminder to go back to gratitude when your mind goes toward “turkey turned out too dry” or “the next door neighbor is talking too much”…. You can’t be in a state of gratitude and annoyance at the same time, so choose gratitude.
