To go from Halloween to November 1 is completely natural on the calendar, but this year, due to the weather, unforeseen circumstances, everything feels rushed and off…

I had heard about the idea to take every day in November to be thankful for something in your life, nothing too big or too small and thought it would be a great way to be mindful of the good things in my life at a time when they might be overshadowed by the not so good things happening around me or in the world.  So here goes…

Day 1

Today I am thankful for my body.  It was Maya’s first home. It lets me run to alleviate stress and to stay healthy. It’s bendy and allows me to do yoga which calms my mind. It is stronger now than probably at any point in my life. It has rhythm and allows me to dance to get the wiggles out and to let my soul sing. It is sometimes clumsy and reminds me that I am not perfect, nor do I need to be.
