Post #107: Let gratitude (not stress) fill your week. 17-Minute Gratitude Meditation
I’m grateful for YOU!!
Seriously, you share in this phenomenal practice with me and we help each other fill life with more peace, more joy, and more gratitude.
And what holiday represents this better than Thanksgiving?
Plus there’s all this good food! (My favorite has got to be the sweet potato casserole. And I like to stir it in with some mashed potatoes, maybe some gravy if it’s vegan. Now that’s a good bite!)
But what’s even better than that is spending time with family and friends and honoring each other with gratitude.
Maybe we honor them by bringing our favorite side dish for Thanksgiving over to their house. Maybe we host the festivities and honor others by getting our house ready and warm and inviting.
Maybe we honor others through charity or volunteer work on this day of gratitude.
However you plan to honor your loved ones this Thursday, remember to do it without that side dish of stress attached.
When you feel the stress crop up over all the to-do’s you have left on your plate, take a pause and:
- take a deep breath, and another
- relax your shoulders and your face
- shift your mindset from stress to gratitude for your loved ones and friends that you have the honor of serving in various ways this holiday season.
- enJOY this Thanksgiving Day!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to sharing my next course coming up after New Year’s, Get Back to Your Soul-Self: the ultimate New Year’s resolution starting January 1. I’ll let you know more on it soon!

Remember, you are a force for good in the world. The more consistent you get with these practices the more your life will become guided, sacred, and filled with meaning. You cannot help but then extend deep peace, joy, and contentment to your loved ones, friends, and everyone you meet. The world could use more of this, so let’s get you in the best space to make it happen.
