I ran early this morning and the thought came to me to see if I could say “Thank You”, 1000 times over the weekend. Doing some quick calculations, I figured that if I sat for 3 minutes in the morning and evening, and dedicated those times to just thinking and feeling the words, “Thank You”, that by Sunday night, I would have said/thought this at least 1000 times (and I am not about to actually count because that would feel like a chore and this is not about struggle in any way). I also wondered how this might change me: what doors would open inside. And then I thought about he power of doing this together as a community.
So, it is Friday and if you would like to join me in this practice/adventure/challenge then you are invited! It would be wonderful to hear from anyone who would like to share about your experiences either giving this a try, or with a personal story of gratitude, a quote or a word. I’ll be doing this too; both checking in and posting when I feel moved to do so.
1.Only do this if it feels like a Good idea…this should not be another thing to feel bad about!
2.and even if you only get to say, 10 thank you’s, you are welcome to “borrow” from the group to meet your quota!
3. Comment as many times (or not) as you would like over the weekend.
3. If you are not feeling at all grateful, maybe dip into the pool of gratitude that will be created here and just float and absorb the Love.
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough“. Meister Eckhart
