Thanksgiving is a time where we celebrate family and connection with others. How about taking a moment to connect with yourself and your body? In all honesty, if you are not feeling well or your body is in pain then connecting with your body may be a challenge. Being thankful for your body may seem near impossible. Instead, it may feel like your body is against you every step of the way and holding you back from doing the things in life you love. I invite you to change your perspective slightly
I encourage you to step back for a moment and think about what is going right in your body. If you are reading this then your eyes are working. If you are able to write then your hands are working. If you are breathing (I really hope you are because if not then there is something seriously wrong) then your lungs are working. If you are able to sit upright and stand upright then your muscles are working.
Take some time to think about what IS working in your body and then take the time to be thankful for those body parts that are helping you out in life. Those parts have not let you down and you need to be thankful that they are pulling their weight and doing their job. It is important that your body feels some level of appreciation and thankfulness… even if it is a small amount. Appreciation will encourage your body to keep doing that thing right 🙂
I wish you a fantastic Thanksgiving with your family and yourself!!!
