The festivities this week in the US are owl about gratitude, and of course you know I’m a HUGE proponent of this in our EVERYDAY lives, because I give hoot that we all feel good!
I’ve also come to understand the difference between gratitude and appreciation.
Gratitude typically focuses on giving thanks for the things we have now that we didn’t have before.
Appreciation focuses on everything & everyone that surrounds us right now, which is the basis of opening up to what is coming next. The most important thing to appreciate? You, right now!!
So, let’s take a moment to appreciate where we are right now, and who we’re sharing this moment with, shall we?
Right now, I’m appreciating these tasty gingerbread lebkuchen treats I’m about to dive into!! Did you know? This is a traditional German holiday season treat. It’s got so much good stuff in it – ginger, cinnamon, orange peel… together they smell and taste so good!!
This year has been full of wonders and I KNOW what’s just around the corner will be AMAZING for owl of us!!! I can FEEL our dreams coming true as I write this, and it’s an honour for this little owl to share this journey with you. I give a hoot about all of us having fun in this world!
Which is why from now on I am choosing to call this festivity HOOTSgiving!! Will you join me?
Oh!! I also appreciate the sunshine and snow that fell this morning in Colorado, where I’m enjoying some time as I decide when to fly on to my next destination.
Here’s to many more Hootsgivings!!
