There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstein
One of my favorite holidays is celebrated this week. Thanksgiving Day is a wakeup call to all the wonderful things I have in my life. For so many years, I was unable to see the goodness in my life. I felt alone, unloved and helpless. Today, my life has transformed from those moments of self-imposed suffering.
I am looking out my window, seeing the bright blue sky and the rolling landscape known as “Beverly Hills”, California. I am here to spend Thanksgiving with my step-children and my nephew, Lawrence. There will be about twenty of us for dinner on Thursday. My assignment for the day is desserts; just perfect for the Queen of cupcakes. I am going to Magnolia’s, the legendary bakery from Sex in the City to scope all the goodies they will have. Then it will be the pie store to sample the pecan and apple pies. Oh well, somebody had to do it. Besides having an assignment I just love, I am really grateful for all the other goodness that I am experiencing in my life.
I am surrounded by people that love and support me in my vision.
All the people I love are in good health.
I have the most sweet and adorable dog, Hannah. I wish she we here with us in Los Angeles.
I have the ability to make the most empowering choices in my life.
So my wish for you this week is to connect with all the miracles you have but may not realize. There is goodness in all our lives if we just look for it. Let go of all your fears and connect with the light and love that is within. Find a few of the small things you are grateful for and start to make your own list, adding a few more daily. Watch your energy shift as your list expands.
