Wisdom Wednesday: Thankfulness

3

November 21, 2012 by Darlene McC

Happy Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Amazons.  I am incredibly thankful for the fruits this year has born in my life and for the wealth of readers that have joined this community.  We’ve had some incredible growth this year, and it’s only getting better (November is already our highest trafficked month ever… before that it was October.)

If you’ve been with UA for awhile you can probably already guess: I was the kid at the Thanksgiving table trying to get everyone to say what they’re thankful for.  Given the nearly-pessimistic pragmatism of my extended family I was rarely indulged by anyone but my grandmother, Betty; but the love of tradition and my desire for genuine sharing still stirs me toward that bend.  I want to know what others connect with in their lives; I want to hear about the things that stir their hearts.

In hunting for a WW quote for today I tried to find “Thankfulness” quotes which touch that feeling of connection.  I also wanted a quote that shifted perspective on what it means to be thankful.  While I didn’t find a single quote that did both, I think these two work in concert.

Please, feel free to share in our comments what you’re thankful for this year.

Cue the song by Poison, please...

Happy Thanksgiving, Amazons.

    I am incredibly thankful for a life that affords me the opportunity for self-reflection, growth, and artistic pursuit. There are so many elements that have to come together for that to happen; I am overwhelmingly fortunate – and thankful that I know it.

#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
