We all have different gifts. When we are mindful of the gifts we have it enables us to find a way to share these gifts with others. You may have the ability to calm someone down when they are upset, maybe you are a fantastic cook and your culinary creations bring comfort to your family, your art can touch others, your wisdom can be a guiding light to those that are lost in the darkness of problems, you may have the patience to teach a skill to someone in need. The ways in which we can share the beauty of who we are, are too numerous to list!
Thank you for the gift of spending this past year with all of you. I have gained insight and wisdom from your thoughtful and beautiful responses to the prompts. I hope that this group has been a gift to you also and that it has helped you in some way.
I close this year of mindfulness with some words to mediate on:
First, believe in this world- that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful.” Be Mindful by Marie D. Jones
Let us find ways to make those words true, let us share peace, understanding and the gifts that we were blessed with.
