gratitude-and-peace

 

November brings thoughts of Thanksgiving, cider, and warm thoughts as days darken and temperatures begin to drop (in the Northern hemisphere).

It is also a time of gratitude for the family joys and occasions that we share.  Between the merriment of costuming and manic preparation for Winter Solstice and holiday gift giving, it is important for me to surround myself with the peace of being, observing, and appreciating.

Some of the greatest transformation we can achieve begins on the inside; how our changed attitudes within bring us acceptance and compassion, we can express it to others in acts of kindness in word and deed.

As our world changes in its unfolding seasons and dramatic landscapes visually, I want to remember to seek out moments of restorative balance and contemplative continuity. Finding a moment for gratitude and thanks is my goal in the coming weeks that I hope will become habit.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me.

I suspect that the most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen.

Just Listen.

Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. And especially if it’s given from the heart. When people are talking, there’s no need to do anything but receive them.

Just take them in. Listen to what they are saying. Care about it.

Most times, caring about it is even more important than understanding it. Most of us don’t value ourselves or our love enough to know this. It has taken me a long time to believe in the power of simply saying, “I’m so sorry,” when someone is in pain. And meaning it.
