Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you… One of my beautiful yoga teachers closes every class with this mantra. Literally flooding our consciousness with gratitude. In the same way light forces out darkness, when you focus all your attention on what you are thankful for, there is literally no space for negativity.
With two small children and a fledgling business, I’m the first to admit that I don’t always arrive at class loaded with gratitude!! On a dark cold morning, perhaps wet from a rainy bike ride, jetlagged, or extra tired from an early rising toddler… there’s a little less gratitude and a little more grump.
On those days, this simple but powerful mantra never fails me. Thank you for my strong legs that carried me to class. Thank you for my loving husband, getting the kids to school without me. Thank you for my team, who arrive at work with enthusiasm every day. Thank you for the sky above me and ground beneath my feet.
On the eve of 2019, I say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. To our distribution and retail partners who represent us with such passion around the world. To our creative partners who are always pushing the boundaries with us. To my Abel team – we are just three – tiny but mighty. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
In 2019 I’ll be focusing on the things I have to be grateful for, and protecting them ferociously.
I will be grateful for my voice, and will use it to speak out about the important things.
I will be grateful for our planet, and commit to working harder to protect it.
I will be grateful for my health, and will do everything in my power to sustain it.
I will be grateful for my role as a mother, and will love and lead by example every day.
I will be grateful for my inner circle, and support each one of them in their dreams and challenges.
I will be grateful for Abel, and make sure its impact on others is also positive.
This year I will say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you every day.
Will you join me?
