Interim 2015, Episode 229: A Thanksgiving Special

It’s Thanksgiving today, and I want to take a moment to join you in gratitude in this special holiday episode. I’ll also take some time to let you know about the launch of Season 2, but for now…

What are you thankful for?

If you’ve been listening to my show for a while now, you know that I’m a big advocate of letting go of your stories – the fiction part at least; the part you make up about the real facts of what happens. And you’ll also know that the best way to do that is to stay awake and not go into auto-pilot mode.

Being thankful is one great way to flip that switch and become fully present to what is. Anytime we pause to give thanks, if we’re truly looking at what we are thankful for, we have no choice but to heighten our awareness.

So, what are you thankful for today? Really Thankful for?
