My last entry was one year ago and it was about gratitude for my physical body. 3 days later my Mother took her own life. I find this quite profound and it is causing me to pause for a moment and seriously be with gratitude for my physical body and the ability to have a relationship with it.
As we approach Thanksgiving and this time of gratitude I am drawn towards the simple things in life. At the end of every class I close with 'Take a few breaths in gratitude and silently express thanks for anything you are grateful for in your life'. I always drop into gratitude for those students that chose to come and be in their body and take care of themselves. Then I always lean towards nature; gratitude for the sun, for air, for the ability to move freely, for trees. I then shift towards loved ones and security, having 'enough', being well.
What are you grateful for?
