So Much To Be Thankful For

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Part of living a healthier life is about being mindful of each day. This includes being aware of and acknowledging the good around you. Thanksgiving is a particularly good day for such reflection. We live in a busy world with such busy lives so this day of Thanksgiving provides us an official moment to stop and reflect.

Much of what I have to be thankful for are present in my life each year- my family, my friends, my health, my sweet dogs, my home. They may be an ongoing blessing but they must never be taken for granted! This day gives me that chance to put them front and center and pause to give thanks out loud and sincerely. THANK YOU! I AM BLESSED!!

Then there are the new things to be thankful for which have been added to the list of blessings. Last week I launched the website of my new company- Livliga. Who would have ever thought that at the age of 56 I would be conceiving and starting up a new company! I have received so much encouragement from so many people, including many I have not known before but who were willing to give me time, insight, advice and, yes, encouragement. Such generosity! THANK YOU! I AM BLESSED!!

Finally, this year, I want to give a "shout out" to the wonderfulness of embracing change and challenge. I have noticed in life that as people we often shy away from things that "rock the boat". We like things to stay the same so we can stay in our comfort zone.  Sometimes though our lives demand that we change and meet the challenge that change brings. I am so grateful to have been given the chance at this stage in my life to have embraced change and met the challenge of that change in my life. Who knew I would ever need to learn about retail? That my life was going to revolve around fine china? Or that I would have a lease on a warehouse!?! Who knew I would design dinnerware or write a series of children's books? THANK YOU! I AM BLESSED!!

All this change is all about helping make the world a healthier and happier place. I hope that my personal insight which drove me to create this new company will help add to the momentum for better health and healthier lives for all of us...and especially our children.


Happy Thanksgiving!
