Happy Thanksgiving: Grateful For…

book coach lisa tenerHappy Thanksgiving!

As always I am so grateful for the work I get to do. I love the variety and the wonderful work that my clients and community are creating. And the huge difference you are all making your communities and in the world.

It’s a true joy to help you get deeply in touch with your gifts, your wisdom and your creative magic. To witness your genius, humor, creativity and spontaneity. To help you make big change and support you in helping others.

To witness you as you find your authentic voice.

Thank you for allowing me to accompany you on this journey of being an author.

In addition to all that, here are a few things I’m particularly grateful for this week:

  • My family and their wisdom, expression and love
  • Our Labradoodle, Sophie, who’s always excited to see me, wagging her tail and jumping even when I’ve been gone only ten minutes!
  • The gift of so many warm and sunny fall days
  • Willett Free Library

  • Willett Free Library—smallest library in the smallest state. From Kaffeeklatsch to the book and bake sale, there is always a sense of community.
  • The incredibly vibrant colors of autumn this year—and with a few surprises. My friend Uli showed me some pictures of azaleas with their leaves turning red and yellow, yet full of purple blooms.
  • My parents and ancestors who share(d) a love of the written word
  • The dream world—full of magical creatures—from yetis to snakedogs, and cafe au soul which has opened my eyes to the meanings and power of my dreams as they shift and grow!
  • Seeing With Your Heart

I could go on, but it’s your turn. Please share a few things you are grateful for—writing related and otherwise!

    Hi Lisa, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending me wonderful “Thanksgiving”
    We are engulfed in Eternal bliss, but we are so myopic that we fail to see it; He is all around us in the delicate new leaves, the fragrance and the flowers which reflect His noble character, in the ocean’s colour, in the infinity of the sky -sharing the same colour that of the ocean; in the snow-capped peaks and in the deserts. Blessed are the ones who can experience his presence!! You are one of them!

    Being happy is the second nature!! Stay blessed!!
