Reasons for an Endless Season of Gratitude

Happy Holiday Wishes From Author & Author Coach Michael Larsen 

The holidays are a time for giving thanks for gifts that go on giving. Each of us is a unique, random, miraculous balance of nature and nurture. A middle-class American life makes it more possible for us than most people on this floating, amazing ecosystem to be grateful for having:

·         Friends and family you love who love you
·         A healthy lifestyle
·         Freedom
·         Food, clothing and shelter
·         Enough income
·         A spiritual practice
·         Access to technology
·         Mobility
·         An inspiring mission
·         Fulfilling work with people you like, respect and admire
·         A life that is a labor of love
·         Access to the knowledge and culture you need and want
·         Opportunities for self-improvement
·         A community that serves your needs and shares your values
·         The ability and chance to create and innovate
·         Opportunities to express gratitude with time, money and civic engagement
·         Reasons to celebrate
·         Daily time with nature
·         Reasons to laugh and smile
·         A balance between:
* yin and yang
* too little and too much
* desire and necessity
* your personal and professional life
* your time online and off
* analog and digital
* service and self-fulfillment
* possessions and experience
* change and stability
·         As simple a life as you can have so you can focus on what has lasting value
·         Optimism

May you find this life worth striving for this holiday season and ever after.
