Thank yourself too

March 24, 2022

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends, to carve out some space to reflect on, well, what we are thankful for. We get to spend time with the people that raise us up while enjoying the abundance of a delicious feast. Many of us will take time to give back, giving our thanks by volunteering our time and donating to meaningful organizations. During this exciting, and sometimes stressful, holiday, it is too easy to forget to be thankful for one particularly important person: You.

You are taking care of yourself so that you can be there for others. You are trying new things and learning to think in new ways. You are making a conscious effort to be thoughtful about the decisions you make and what their consequences may be for the world around you. You take the less convenient path because you believe in it and know that it is right. When you encounter a challenging problem, you don’t back down and give up. No, you work together with everyone around you and come up with ever more clever solutions to try. You set some goals back in January, and now as the year closes, you are working hard to move towards them or to build on them. You are living The Renewable Life and that is awesome.

We are so very thankful that you are you, and we hope that you are too. Happy Thanksgiving from The Renewal Workshop Family.
