GratiTuesday – March 19th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! Gratitude. Gratefulness. Great Fullness. Yeah! Brother David Steindl-Rast shares his perspective on the relationships between gratitude, mindfulness, and our inner child, in this excerpt from an interview with Catherine Ingram and Rex Weyler for New Age (September 1983, Vol. 9, #2, pp. 36-40 and 62-64): https://gratefulness.org/resource/on-great-fullness-from-all-in-the-same-boat/ As always, each Tuesday we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful for access to my childlike wonder and awe for nature. Now your turn. I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: ___________________________________________________________ #laurelblossomyoga #omofficeyoga #omintheoffice #corporateyoga #corporatewellness #mindfulness #yoga #privateyoga #reiki #yogateaandchocolateworkshops #meditation #om #gratitude #gratituesday #davidsteindlrast #newage #catherineingram #rexweyler #greatfullness

GratiTuesday – February 19th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! Kindness, the kind of kindness that is offered without expectation of reciprocity, may well be gratitude-in-action; one’s own fully felt gratitude spilling over and expressing as random acts of kindness. Have you had this experience? Charlotte Hilton Anderson compiled a list of “50 Random Acts of Kindness”: https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/smart-living/50-random-acts-of-kindness-that-dont-cost-a-cent/ar-BBOcKyw?ocid=sf Check it out. I am willing to bet you do these things, too.

GratiTuesday – February 12th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! “Expectations are the bane of gratitude.

Gordon entitled “Four Ways to Make the Most of Gratitude on Valentine’s Day”: https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/four_ways_to_make_the_most_of_gratitude_on_valentines_day#.XGLhr6ckG2A.gmail

GratiTuesday – February 5th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ It’s GratiTuesday Day! “Sometimes a simple act of kindness toward another person, a thank you, a compliment, a vote of confidence can have a much bigger effect (on them) than we realize; and can even change the way we see ourselves,” transcribed from TEDRadio Hour host, Guy Roz’s introduction to the January 17th, 2019, podcast, “Approaching with Kindness”, an (almost) hour exploring the power of gratitude and appreciation, or in other words, kindness toward self and others.

GratiTuesday – January 29th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! Or is it not a happy GratitTuesday? Living an authentic life, being real, allowing what IS to BE as it IS, may require us to also BE with unpleasant or uncomfortable emotions and experiences. Came across a Good Housekeeping article that really caught my attention, “It was an Ingratitude List that Saved Me”, by Liz Brown [https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/life/a45386/gratitude-lists-dont-work/]. Usually on Tuesdays we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful… AND this Tuesday perhaps we tap into our authentic selves to uncover what really IS for us – good, bad, or ugly – and Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. I’ll go first… Today I am not grateful for feeling like I need to hide my authentic self to be accepted. Now your turn. Today I am not grateful for: _____________________________________________________ #laurelblossomyoga #omofficeyoga #omintheoffice #corporateyoga #corporatewellness #mindfulness #yoga #yogateaandchocolateworkshops #meditation #guidedmeditations #om #gratitude #gratituesday #compassion #authenticity #bereal #ingratitude

GratiTuesday – January 22nd

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Another GratiTuesday – Yay! Imagine this: You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. The point is whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out. Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It is easy to fake a cup-o-joy, until you get rattled. So, we might ask ourselves, “What is in my cup?” When life bumps into me, what spills out? Joy, gratitude, peace? Or is it anger, bitterness, or harsh words that spill out? Ultimately, you choose what is filling your cup. Consider consciously filling up your cup with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, affirmation, kindness, and compassion for yourself and others. [“What is in your cup Analogy” ~ Anonymous; creatively edited ever so slightly by yours truly]

It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful for my gratitude practice(s) which fill my cup. Now your turn.
