A Moment of Gratitude

I know we just came through the season of thankfulness, but gratitude is something we should never stop feeling. A grateful heart is amazing for creating a feeling of peace in a busy world.

My suggestion for our first day is to take just 5 minutes and write down, or record on your phone, or simply share with a friend, 3 things you are grateful for. If you record them in some way, you can come back to them in a particularly difficult time and remind yourself of the wonderful things in your life and you will feel better in no time.

What will you record today? Oh, and do it again tomorrow too! Share with us on Facebook!

Living Wabi-Sabi

Wabi what? Yep, wabi-sabi. What seems like a nonsense term is really a lovely concept. Wabi-sabi is a japanese idea that means loving acceptance of the imperfect.  Its a lovely way to encounter yourself and the world. To accept that we are not perfect and let the unattainable go can be very freeing and allow us to accomplish things we might have let go if we were trying to make them perfect. The next step is to see others in the same way. Can you love the imperfections in your friends, family, and the guy behind the DMV counter? That’s not as easy, but a wonderful goal to strive for. Life would be much more calm and enjoyable. I’m ready for that…are you?
