I intended to write this blog on a completely different topic. But as my hands hit the keys, I heard a voice in my head (honestly!): “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you…that will be enough.”
I felt that Meister Eckhart was sending me a message (and maybe you too), which I imagined went like this: “Toss the original topic. Focus on giving thanks. Stop looking at what you lack (as I tend to do). Instead, appreciate the abundance you have….and those who’ve made it possible”
So today, in the spirit of Thanksgiving and a 13th century mystic, I’m taking this opportunity to say Thank You…
…to all of you who are reading this blog, even if it’s the only time you ever do, I truly appreciate you reading it today.
…to everyone who’s ever written to tell me how my work has impacted your life, you have no idea how your words have impacted mine. In fact, your notes and emails are hanging on my office walls.
…to anyone who’s bought my books and perhaps passed it onto a friend, this means more to me than you can ever know.
…to those of you who’ve joined my groups or signed up for coaching, I’m endlessly grateful you trusted me to guide you while teaching me to be a better guide.
…to my amazing team—Lynda Jo, Carney, Jen & Ben—for taking care of all the details I abhor and for supporting me in such a deeply loving way. I really would be lost without each of you.
…to my ex who gambled away my inheritance and my father who wouldn’t lend me money, you taught me that, indeed, the obstacle is the path, leading me straight to my life’s purpose.
…to my wonderful financial team, because even if my portfolio is currently down a bit, it’s dramatically higher than 20+ years ago when I first found you.
…to my kids, grandkids and stepson who are traveling on the busiest days of the year to spend Thanksgiving with us. Truly, my cup runneth over.
…to my beloved husband who rarely lets a day pass without expressing his love, appreciation and support for me.
Once again, from the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU ALL!
