Holiday Musings + Meaning in the Season
I find many reasons to be grateful this holiday season and my "raised awareness" attitude is one. I am grateful that despite all the naysayers, we live in a country where there is free speech, an opportunity to better ourselves, and free will. I'm grateful that today I know I'm responsible for my own well-being and happiness and take measures to satisfy my own needs. I'm grateful that I care deeply about others and do service work that helps others and is fulfilling to me . I'm grateful I have a career that I love and a soul mate to share my life with. I'm grateful for friends and family I hold dear. For today I have made the choice to be with people in my life who accept me and cherish me just as I am. I'm grateful I know I have options. I have learned that I need to be conscious about how I conduct myself, what I believe and think, and how I live. Today I make the decision to live simply and mindfully, taking particular care about my carbon footprint. I set the intention daily to do my part to conserve mother earth and her resources as well as strive to be kind and loving with all the people I know. This is my holiday gift to myself and those I meet.
