I Broke Down Into Tears!

I can not believe it is already that time of year again, so let me say…Happy Holidays!
There is something so special about this time of year. I am blessed to have so many incredible childhood memories of sitting around the Thanksgiving table, surrounded by people I love, sharing what we are grateful for.
It was not too long ago that I broke into tears as I professed my undying gratitude for my family who has always believed in me…even when I had no idea where I was heading. It was a powerful moment because I realized that even when times are tough, even when you feel like the deck has been stacked against you, that being thankful, and expressing that thanks, is both cathartic and important.
The holidays seem to magnify whatever state we are in. This holiday season I encourage you to be thankful for wherever you are in your life.In my recent Inspired Living interview with Gilles Marini (coming soon!), we talked about him coming to America with just $400 and no idea how to speak the language. He was enamored by the fact that in America we have the ability to BE anything we desire, that this is the only country in the world where only we can hold ourselves back. In other countries where people use dreams to escape, we use them to create.
As we venture into this beautiful season of love and lights, remember to be thankful. Focus on what you do have and think of all the people out there who have so much less. I am a firm believer in “You get what you give.” Give to someone, whether it’s a meal, a dollar, or a hug. Let’s be grateful for one another and the ability we ALL possess to Dream. Live. and BE!
I wish you and yours an incredible day of Thanksgiving.

Shine ON!!
