Thank You

Having taken the time to complete this exercise, have you found any surprises? Was there any question that you couldn’t answer?

Sometimes when we can’t see something for ourselves, it helps to picture a good friend, or loved one. Imagine if they were trying to answer the question and couldn’t. What would you tell them? Now, put yourself in their place – what would they say about you? How would they answer the question for you?

Often we have an easier time acknowledging another than ourselves. It’s also usually easier to say ‘thank you’ to another than to ourselves. But here is the time to say it – tell yourself thank you for this past year, and allow gratitude to fill your heart for your place in this world.
