Today is Thanksgiving here in America. The smell of sage and pumpkin pie hangs heavy in the air and all across the country people are gathering together with their loved ones and celebrating all of the many blessings that there are in this life, in between football games and the ensuing family bickering and quintessential food coma.
My Thanksgiving dinner celebration will be small and sweet. My hugs and my heart go out to all of my family, friends and everyone that I love who cannot be by my side today.
We have much to celebrate and be joyful for, despite the strife in the world today and also perhaps as a result of it. Let’s all reconnect with that part of ourselves that realizes the happiness is an inner expression, an internal experience rather than an external expectation brought to us by the actions of another. We are joyful, wise beings living in a world where we are challenged to remember that.
Be your joy and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
