Is there anything, I mean anything, of any value that is still left to be said about gratitude??? Thanksgiving’s here and although it’s literally my favorite Holiday for a variety of reasons, when I thought about writing something this morning I felt like a dried up prune.
And then I got it! I don’t have anything else to say about gratitude and being thankful. I need to start acting out of it rather than talking about it.
So here’s my intention. In gratitude for all the bounty that I’m experiencing in my life, I’m going to pay back or pay forward—call it what you will—something, in some way, to someone, every day for the next month. It may be small, $1 in a Salvation Army bucket if that’s all I have on me, it may be big. I honestly don’t think quantity or size matters. What matters is that for at least one moment in every day I will get out of myself, away from my absorption with ‘me me me’.
And in case you’re someone who can’t even remember who you are because you’re always giving to everybody else, I’m thinking you can just turn the directions around. For all the giving you’ve done, pay yourself back or forward by giving yourself something, in some way, every day for the next month.
I love these short and sweet posts where I don’t endlessly ramble on. In fact, this is what I’m giving today. Something short and sweet so that you don’t have to spend much time on it!
All my love!
