Wow! It’s mid-November already!
With the cooler weather and shorter days, it really does feel like a new season is upon us….the season of eating and baking and shopping and giving and family and friends, and holiday traffic and…
This is also the time of year when we think about all the many things for which we are grateful–big and small, profound and silly.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said that the best way to find happiness is to “cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously.”
Did you know there’s an app that will remind you to stop and be thankful every day? There’s also a Twitter feed for all your musings #IAmGrateful. Not sure this is what Emerson had in mind, but it’s a start.
Today I’m grateful for the Point Pinole Regional Shoreline, which I only recently discovered and which has amazing trails, off-leash walks for my doodle, ocean views, and stunning trees like this one, covered in bizarre golden fungi. I’m grateful for living in this amazing place called the East Bay!
Whatver medium or meme you choose, I hope you get to spend some time experiencing your own gratitude this month. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
