I’m writing this on Thanksgiving morning. Hoping you had a memorable holiday!
I’m going in the two party event with something I’ve been experimenting with lately. I’m trying to see things as either an experience to be savored and enjoyed or an opportunity for growth and learning.
Doing so drops expectations I have for an event and helps me stay present and focused on what’s most important.
As you recover from yesterday’s festivities, I hope you have a chance to either savor the loving memories or find some jewel of wisdom from whatever took place. And if you need extra help, you’ll find a common theme of calming your anger and dealing with narcissists in our top posts this week.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
