It’s Monday of the week of Thanksgiving. You can start Black Friday shopping, the biggest commercial sales event of the year, at a variety of places already, preparing for the next holiday. My heart is full today. Today is a great place to be.
Today, I meditated to a free AP, Insight Timer, information shared with me by a friend. I particularly like Moving Kundalini Meditation by Shakti Sutriasa. The same friend receives an email with my gratitude list, sometimes 2 different lists, a day.
I listened to my new favorite song today, Have It All by Jason Mraz, which I heard in a public restroom for the first time this weekend. There was a waitress in the restroom who encountered me standing there delighted to my toes, taking it in. “Have you heard this?” I asked.
“Three times,” she said, “Over the speakers here,” she gestured up, although she did not know the name of it. I Googled the refrain and then returned to the table although I had already said my goodbyes. I played it for the two friends who remained at the table. I shared it on my Facebook Page, firstname.lastname@example.org because it’s brilliant, loving and wonderful. Thank you, Jason Mraz, for sharing your gift.
There is so much in this life; love, loss, sorrow, grief, happiness, hope, laughter, loneliness, contentment, achievement and gratitude. I have the privilege of hearing grief journeys in my work every day. I have been given a great gift, to know there is so much more to life than there is here, and it is available to all of us. Those who connect with their loved ones have the courage to walk their grief journeys and live their lives to the best of their abilities, knowing more.
Love lives on. I feel it in my meditation. I know it through my work. I feel and know it in my home and family. My heart is full, spilling love. Embracing life, living life, with all of you, having the courage to accept life and sometimes love it, flaws and all. I am thankful today, to be able to share the journey.
