An attitude of gratitude
What Thanksgiving isn't
Thanksgiving day has a wholly unique meaning to me: It’s not about the turkey with all the trimmings. I don’t care about the sweet potato pies I make. The Tryptophan-induced coma that enables me to sleep through the football games is fun. Personally, I can do without all of the additional hassle and fuss.
Thanksgiving is an attitude
What I do enjoy is reflecting on everything that I’m grateful for. You see, Thanksgiving is a reminder for me to have an attitude of gratitude. Not just through the holiday season, but all year long. I used to make a list every year, and each year I would reflect on what I had written the previous year. Now, I make lists throughout the year and review them frequently. I do this to keep the world’s problems from weighing me down, especially the things I can’t change. The things that I can change require little effort, and for that I am truly grateful. When I allow this to happen, I’m also obtaining wisdom and discernment.
One item on my list has been the recent relocation of this practice, Urban Renewal Massage. The end of this December will be the one-year anniversary of the move. Wow! Already? Things happen fast, don’t they? This move has been an extremely good thing for me. But, more importantly, it has been beneficial to the folks who continue to see me for therapy. I’m especially grateful to those of you from my early days; you guys have followed me all over Tulsa! I am honored to be a part of your healing journey. I have also recently acquired some new patients since I’ve moved to the new location, and to all of YOU: thank you for making room for me on your team toward better health. And finally, I have the pleasure to announce. . .
Full to the brim
I have what is known as a closed practice! This means that I have no room to take on additional patients at this time. All new patients now have to join the waiting list.
I have all of you to thank, because I don’t actively solicit new patients. Your referrals of friends and family have brought me to this point. What this means is, you all have trusted me to help not only you but someone you care about. There is no amount of advertising that can match that. Period.
Right now I would like for you to put your hand over your heart and feel your heartbeat. You feel that? I can feel mine, too. I promise you that, for as long as my heart beats, I will continue to do the best that I can to deliver the best that I have to offer in helping you along your journey toward better health.
I wish I could hug all of you at once!
Thank you, and as always,
peace and love,
