My heart sings today as I got my organic turkey without ordering, I am a bit unprepared at times. Things always work out yet in what appears through a chaotic rhythm. Chaos has order in it as you sit looking long enough. All chaos rebirths to order at some point. I was grateful that my chaotic rhythm synced up to have turkey! It made me shine!
I realized, as most with this "cup half full" attitude, I celebrate the simple things. We gear ourselves up at the smallest of gifts of life going well. Many often save celebration for the big things yet the small ones can ride you through each day. Having an attitude of gratitude and celebration helps me deal with all the mess of life. Life is messy regardless. To have this openness to look for the right in the small, finds a joy spark you can ride.
In the midst of great crisis, something inside of me can see joy. I can radar in on the good that occurs. I was at the grocery store and asked if there was a space for cards. It involved getting manager, blah blah so I just told the girl next time. She loved my card about the podcast and water. She asked to keep it! Another wave of joy came upon me for a good interaction.
My view of the mountains can do it, my favorite songs on the radio, the kindness others offer in a smile, the happy neighbor wave, even my flinging of things that shatter brings me to giggle. We have to reset our radar especially with all the news. No looking for signs of the scary, the fearful and bad. We need to step away and look for the simple goodness of daily events.
I inspire you this holiday to really revel in the simple things. Our lives have been simplified and there is goodness in that. Less of everything has been nice. Less rat race, more true interaction and savoring of what we have. Even reviewing what we want as times have changed. The joy of this simplicity you can ride and spread its deliciousness!
Yes I have many tough, hard, failing times in life too. Far more than I share. Yet my thankfulness for what turns out right supports me tremendously! Preserving the lesson makes the hard have purpose and that will eventually lead me back to gratitude. Really work this word. We all know this. Yet when we interact, create energy and really sink into this wave, life changes immediately. It is a most powerful tool and why we have a day to celebrate!
Have a blessing filled Thanksgiving!
