With Thanksgiving a few days away, we are all caught up in the hectic energy of our "have to" lists! It's where we have to travel to and/or the shopping and preparing of the feast. The airports, highways and supermarkets are crowded beyond belief and people become impatient and unkind! And then without a minute's breather, it's on to Christmas shopping! And we all know how crazy that energy can be; especially when there is a big sale!! So if there is anything that I feel worth doing, it's trying to stay in the moment of what's happening! When you put yourself in real time and just be with whatever is happening, you feel more centered and in control. You will also notice that just being in the moment reduces anxiety and stress. Anxiety can only happen when we think about the future in any capacity. Whether it be where we have to be in the next ten minutes or what we have to do tomorrow. There is no anxiety in the present moment when you are truly present! That is why the future is a mystery, the past is history, and the "present" is a "gift"!! Remember, laughter is the best medicine!!! So surround yourself with people that have a good sense of humor. And in the spirit of laughter and fun, I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
