Wake Up Call! – Get Out Of The Weeds!

GET OUT OF THE WEEDS!

Don’t miss the joy and gratitude by getting caught up in the weeds of life!

I was running around checking off items on my “to do” list in preparations for our Thanksgiving feast. My expectation and gratitude for our Thanksgiving suddenly dissipated. I felt ornery as it all became an endless chore. “Ugh” I thought.  What was going on?

I’d become caught in the weeds of my prepping. That was not a place I wanted to linger for too long.

What chores could be farmed out, deleted from the list or completed more efficiently? I wanted to return to my expectant gratitude for my favorite holiday gathering!

I returned to my tradition of visualizing each person who would gather around our table, naming and giving thanks for them and at least one attribute I admired or adored.  I was out of the weeds and feeling whole!

PRACTICES:

  • Notice and name your journey through the weeds of life so they do not choke you
  • Choose a practice to reground you in what really matters

Notice how your healthy, grateful responses are like a weed killer.
