Thanksgiving can be about the turkey, stuffing, and sweet potatoes or it can be about the opportunity to thank and appreciate the people who mean the most to you.
But by merely surviving the holidays, we often miss the point of the season.
Instead of powering through your to-do list this Thanksgiving, why not be the source of appreciation and thanks and create a true THANKSGIVING?
Here are a few ideas to get you on the path to being thankful this holiday:
Be the source of giving thanks wherever you go. If you do this, it will enable you to build a muscle of appreciation that will expand beyond the holiday and have your life filled with gratitude for the big and the little things that make up your everyday life.
I am so thankful to have you in this UNMESSABLEWITH community. As an expression of gratitude, I have created a FREE ONE NIGHT WORKSHOP design to empower you to create an:
UNMESSABLEWITH HOLIDAY SEASON
One of the first questions I ask people I work with is "What is your dream?".
Sometimes people have an answer at the tip of their tongues but sometimes it takes a bit to get the dreaming muscle going.
Many of us stop dreaming when we are small, for fear that the dream is unrealizable, or silly, or maybe too hard and not worth it.
Once you can articulate your dream, my next question is "Where did that dream come from?"
Often what people see if that they are living a default dream, a dream they inherited from their parents, society, a Disney movie.
If you are spending your life chasing a default dream, even if you realize the dream, ultimately you will not be truly satisfied and fulfilled because YOU didn't create that dream, it was sourced by an outside force, whether it was a person, group of people, circumstance, problem you wanted to solve or the media.
If you let go of any default dream, what would be there?
What you might see is NOTHING. In the space of nothing you are free to CREATE your dream NOW vs continue to chase a default dream you inherited.
Look for yourself and let me know what you see.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
