Happy Thanksgiving, folks!
Seeing the Seven of Cups today, I’m inclined to suggest you double-check the fruit in that Jell-O mold. All may not be what it seems…Ha!
Seriously, though…it’s a day people in the US at least often spend with family and close friends. It’s also the official kick-off to the holidays, and such special occasions often stir up long-forgotten pains and fantasies. It’s quite easy to slip into a distorted view of reality, even without multiple trips to top off the eggnog.
The uncle who seems to have everything, may not. The loved one who makes your house last on the visit list (if at all) may do it because there’s a ticket to the Guilt Trip express involved in doing otherwise. The success and failure and loves and hates that appear before you may be nothing of the sort in reality.
There is a simple way to rise above, though: be generous. Be kind. Be loving! This tactic sidesteps so much drama, it’s not even funny. This is how you find clarity. It’s not confusing to decide what “being kind” means. It’s not hard to figure out how to be gracious if you’re focused on yourself.
Don’t worry about what anybody else is seeing or thinking or being. Give of yourself, open your heart authentically and unconditionally, and the little stuff doesn’t amount to much in the face of such force.
And even if you don’t have a foggy Thanksgiving, it’s still sound advice and cannot help but make whatever you do today better. So why not?
I’ll be doing my best to have a healthy helping of this advice. And some turkey. We dig turkey.
You have Thanksgiving plans?
Schedule a session with Dixie.
