Gratitude is about being present and mindful. It helps us to be intentional about the beauty and the beast found in life. It encourages us to live in the “and”. To accept that life is good AND hard, magical AND messy.
This time of year requires a presence amidst the hustle and bustle, pies in the oven, and presents being wrapped. In order for us to lead ourselves, our colleagues, and those we love through winter, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Whether you are wanting to be more connected to your team at work or tribe at home, I cannot encourage you enough to do your work and find guides who remind you of who you are and how you have lost your way.
One thing I’ve come to acknowledge is that we are all recovering from something. It doesn’t have to be the throes of addiction or a life-long wrestle out of a trauma-laced childhood, but each day we live and breathe is ripe with reasons why recovery is critical.
