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.

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
