Thanksgiving ABC’s

By: on 11/23/2010   No Comments

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends, but it is also a time for reflection on the many things we have in our lives that we are grateful for.  Gratitude is a wonderful way to raise your vibration and shift your energy.  The vibration of gratitude is a powerful force.  It can shift your mood and your thoughts from a place of scarcity to a place of abundance.

I started my “Thanksgiving ABC’s” last year, and found that the simple exercise of writing down 26 things I’m grateful for was a wonderful way to shift into a vibration of gratitude.  Here are my Thanksgiving ABC’s for 2010:

A – Allegra, for bringing love and joy to my life every day; and Amber, who left much too soon.  I will always love you, my beautiful girl.

B – Blogging.  I love connecting with my readers, and with other bloggers.  I’ve made so many wonderful friends in the blogosphere, and I’ve learned about so many things I otherwise never would have known about.

C – Clients.  It’s a privilege and a joy to be working with my wonderful Reiki clients, both human and furry.

D – Dreams.  Without them, life would be pretty dull.

E – Eating out.  Eating, period.  I love food!

F – Friends.  I am richly blessed in that area.

G – German food.  Especially German holiday cookies:  Lebkuchen, Pfeffernuesse, Marzipankartoffeln, Zimtsterne.

H – Health.  I’m fortunate that mine is excellent.

I – Intuition.  Honoring it has never led me in the wrong direction.

J – Joy.  Especially the joy in life’s small moments.

K – Kindness.  Small random acts of kindness, extended to all living beings, matter.

 L – Latte.  Especially the return of my perennial seasonal favorite, Starbucks Gingerbread Latte.

M – Music.  Anything from heavy metal to classical.

N – New York City, my favorite city in the world.

O – Online shopping. 

P – Pilates.

Q – Quiet time.  It’s vital to me for mental health, creativity, and inner peace.

R – Reading.  It’s as essential to me as breathing.

S – Solitude.  It helps me recharge my batteries.

T – Tortoiseshell cats.

U – Uplifting people.

V – Veterinarians everywhere, for all they do for pets each and every day.

W – Writing.

X –  No matter how hard I try, I can’t come up with anything starting with X. 

Y – You!  All of you who are reading this:  subscribers, friends, social media and blogging buddies – you enrich my life in so many ways.

Z – Zone.  Okay, I’m reaching with this one.  What I mean is the feeling of being in the zone, being in the flow, being so immersed in something that all sense of time and space falls away.

What does your Thanksgiving alphabet look like?
