“There’s nothing you can buy today that will make you feel whole tomorrow.”
Doesn’t it feel odd that a day devoted to love and gratitude is followed by a day consumed by materialism and greed? Today, I encourage you to extend your gratitude practices. Make time for the things you love. Focus on what’s going WELL. Feeling low? Lost? Unfulfilled? Reach out to the people you love. Take a walk. Let the sun kiss your skin. Fill your lungs with the crisp autumn air. INHALE, PAUSE, EXHALE, REPEAT. Remember what it feels like to be ALIVE. When we give in to consumerism we don’t gain, WE LOSE. We are robbed of the present moment. We are constantly looking ahead to the next thing. And the next. And the next. We forget to cherish what we already have. We fail to recognize the treasures already around us.
Today, let gratitude win.
