Yesterday, Thanksgiving Day, twelve in my family made lists of what we’re grateful for.  We read them at the Thanksgiving table.  The gratitude ranged from Kanye West to Social Security.  I’m not telling which one was on my list:)

Thanksgiving was a day spent in the kitchen, each of the adults maneuvering for counter space to prepare their signature dishes, hoping to have everything ready the same time as the turkey.  In spite of personal flaws, rolling eyes, chips on shoulders, and crying babies, the main source of energy was love and laughter.  I love the holidays!  I love family!

Families Rule!

Families Rule!

Needless to say, I am still on the first day of the 7-day mental diet, but that’s okay.  I’m exercising the law of practice and becoming more and more aware of my thoughts because of this practice.

I missed The Gal in the Glass twice this week.  I apologize to my subby for any confusion caused by this slip.  I will not make excuses, but will promise that I’ll be back on track once I get back to Minnesota next week.

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time and you are not alone restarting the mental diet.

    • Thanks for visiting my blog, Jan. Just think of all the practice we’re getting with the mental diet. We’re exercising the Law of Practice, and the Law of Growth, and the Law of Substitution, and the Law of Dual Thought, and sometimes even the Law of Forgiveness:)

  2. You’re aware of you’re journey as in your example of being on day 1 with 7 day mental diet. I bet that didn’t happen prior to our course…good for you!

  3. I seem to always be on my first day. But… first days are always exciting, school, new job, vacation, etc. Bask in the moment.

  4. Happy Late Thanksgiving! <3
    I feel like I am truly getting the hang of the mental diet.. I work with infants and toddlers so perhaps I have extra special training. As they give love, the model endless persistence and determination and a wonder for life. You could go all day without a hitch or be starting your mental diet over every 5 minutes… LOL
    Have a wonderful weekend <3
