Beauty Report: Thanksgiving Today and Every Day

It is Thanksgiving Day. A day that openly invites us all to pay attention to the people, places and things that are most precious to us. It is a reminder that acknowledging gratitude sparkles us up and lets Beauty seep in.

And with that I introduce to you something that has been near and dear to me since my Forrest Yoga Training over 5 years ago: the the Beauty Report.

In Forrest Yoga, a beauty report is: “…when we see or experience something that dances in our heart. It is a way of having a new kind of communication with each other by sharing Beauty.”

It is a wonderful act to share Beauty with others, to spread gratitude and appreciation. To notice both the little things and the big things, to zoom in and to zoom out.

For me, there are many things to be thankful for today and every day. But putting them ‘out there’ has not been my natural comfort zone. I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog for multiple years but there has always been an excuse with fear lingering behind it. That fear is not totally gone, but at last I have dove in!

Let me back up for you a little and let you know a couple of tidbits about me.
*Starting is the challenging part for me. Following through to experience shifts, changes and results is usually not.
*Using words does not feel like my most natural means of communication. I much prefer actions, adornment, and the act of creating.

With those two tidbits in mind, it is easy for me to see why I have resisted writing a blog, even though I believed I had something to offer. The exciting news is that expressing myself in this new way has already begun to shift the dance in my heart (and this is only blog post #4)! This is my Beauty Report for today.

What dances in your heart?
