As we continue our journey through these early stages of the advent season, allow us to hold in our hearts and call to our minds the things we appreciate. Take a minute to listen to your own breathing, to the rhythm of your heart beat. Imagine in your mind the people who you appreciate and identify why you are grateful for them. Rejoice in the great things coming your way and spread this onto other people. Make it a goal to say hello to someone new, do something helpful for another person, tell someone how much you truly appreciate them. This advent season, rejoice in your life and the lives of others, and spread this happiness and appreciation with those around you.
