monday moment of zen


"a crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety."
~aesop

thanksgiving is upon us. while for some that may be a welcomed time of year for others it may bring out some holiday anxiety. this year when things become a bit hectic and you think to yourself 'why did i even come, i knew this was going to happen.' just stop... take a couple of deep breaths... and think of at least one reason why you are grateful to be around those people. see if that doesn't change your outlook and mood.

have a happy thanksgiving and namaste

Hey Melita, are you writing these Monday Moments of Zen specifically for me? I'm dreading Thanksgiving, but hopefully it won't be too bad now that I've been reminded that everyone has *some* redeeming qualities.

How is it you are so sage and savvy? Dear friend, enjoy a relaxing and peaceful Thanksgiving. xoxo Carolyn

Luckily I've never been one to subscribe to holiday anxiety, although I can see getting stressed trying to fit everything in! This year I have oodles of plans, including: making my own cards and throwing a holiday bash. Here's to breathing in between!

Just in time for this post as the anxiety has already started! Lol! Great way to turn it around though. Hope you have been wonderful and well, Melita!

Your picture reminded me of something really important. I used to have a little altar adorned with self-reminders that I would look at every morning and evening as I would leave my home. However, for whatever reason, I haven't continued the tradition while spending a large portion of my time in Michigan. I need to work on this one!
