December 2013, Volume 3, Issue 12

Happy December, SynerLINK friends,

This season brings many of us to explore what we are thankful for as we review the past year, and this month’s lead article raises many thought-provoking questions about this practice.  I really appreciated this article, which discusses the nature of gratitude practice.  Although I’m not a fan of those places in the article that seem to promote judging one another for how deep or shallow we perceive their gratitude practice to be – after all, I’m in support of gratitude in any form – I loved the idea of exploring gratitude for things we don’t normally feel grateful for.  What would it be like to embrace gratitude for the variety of our experiences – those that are small and everyday, those that are imperfect, or those that we may normally label as negative?  (Warning: some adult language.)
