Even though I haven’t seen the sun for days…and it’s forty one degrees outside and raining…and my family is thousands of miles away…and my favorite pajamas have a big hole in them…and I can’t feel my behind after an especially difficult yoga class yesterday…
I am still thankful.
What are you doing to give back this Thanksgiving week?
Since this is the first year I’m really all on my own, I made the pact that instead of feeling sorry for myself, I would give back as much as I could.
So, I have a huge pile of coats and old clothes to donate and am looking forward to cooking Thanksgiving dinners at a local homeless shelter all day on Wednesday.
Because Thanksgiving is about way more than eating until you can’t zip up your jeans, right?
I am looking forward to Friday though! I signed up for a three hour power yoga bootcamp and then Almanzo Adam (who just now decided he wants to be called “Adam” on the blog…I guess he got sick of my Little House obsession?) is flying home early and taking me to a surprise late Thanksgiving dinner.
I am so thankful.
What can you do to give back this week? Cause, in the words of one of my favorite yoga teachers, how you do anything is how you do everything.
Sometimes the greatest acts of kindness are also the smallest.
