Happy Thanksgiving! (Appreciation blessing)

kendall-red-newIt’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., which is my favorite holiday of the year.

Gratitude. Appreciation. Family.

How deeply can you allow yourself to feel gratitude?

Not only for the events in your life that feel celebratory…

…but also for the experiences you’ve gone through that required faith and courage.
Years ago I wrote this blessing and it’s even more relevant today as women entrepreneurs are rising up and stepping into their brilliance.
I encourage you to read this out loud, as if I were standing right with you.
Blessing of Gratitude and Appreciation

When your intuition says, “Yes” but logic tries to convince you that “You’re not ready,” remember that intuition is the voice of the Divine.

When your desire is to step up but you feel afraid, remember that you wouldn’t have the desire if you weren’t capable and ready to fulfill it.

Instead of comparing yourself to others, remember that you can choose in that moment to feel immense gratitude and appreciation for YOUR unique brilliance.

If you find yourself holding back, remember that you’re standing on the edge between the old and the new you.

If you’re wanting clarity, remember that clarity comes when you decide and take action.

If you’ve been playing small, remember that you only have one life and it’s meant to be played full out and full of passion.

If you always give generously to others, remember that opening up to receiving is an act of grace.

Remember that what you admire and appreciate in others is ALREADY present within YOU!
