I know the holiday season only began. We just celebrated Thanksgiving, and today is the first night of Hanukkah. (Hope it's a beautiful holiday for those who are celebrating!!).
Once again, in the U.S., we're celebrating Thanksgiving. In honor of this holiday, I'm sharing 50 prompts for helping us cultivate gratitude today---and every day. You might journal about these prompts right now or tonight. In fact, you might buy a special notebook, and make it a nightly ritual (or a morning one), a time for reconnecting to yourself, a time for reconnecting to what's most important.
In the essay "Look, a Beautiful Moment," in the stunning book A Book That Takes Its Time: An Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness, Irene Ras notes that she's embracing a slower pace at home. Sometimes this looks like baking bread. Sometimes it looks like reading before bed.
You worry that your creative project isn't unique or innovative. It isn't particularly imaginative or artistic. Others have done similar things. Others have said similar things.
The holiday decorations have been on shelves for several weeks now (maybe even a month!). Which can be annoying, because we haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet or finished our Halloween candy.
