Whether or not you’re a fan…it’s here. This year on top of the added stresses the holiday season brings, we have Covid numbers increasing and early season snowfall! It’s the perfect time to think about balance. It’s tempting to jump on the 2020 Year from Hell bandwagon but when I think about it, I can find many things to be grateful for. If you’re finding that difficult to do I highly recommend taking one photo a day. It doesn’t have to be an incredible shot either. It’s the intention being set, the routine being followed; a purpose for the day that you will look beyond the disconnect and make a connection with something. It may not happen overnight but that one little gesture, one photo, can change your mindset and with that, bring balance.
Today, people across Canada are celebrating Thanksgiving. In a year that has brought extreme changes to how we do everything, I’m grateful for where I am at thismoment. There will always be challenges, but those challenges viewed from within the context of a life lived, hold different weights. When I was in a particularly difficult time of my life I remember saying to the woman who was sharing it with me, “Enjoy this time because when it’s gone, you will miss even this.”
Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating today. None of us know where the road will lead but we can enjoy the journey!
