Happy Thanksgiving! I missed our Canadian holiday this year, so I’m jumping in with the Americans. Generally, I go where the party is.
In honour of this beautiful American and Canadian tradition (celebrated in November and October, respectively), I’m making pumpkin pie and roasting turkey.
And I’m slowing down and getting grateful.
Want to know my ‘One Minute To Happiness’ Trick?
Imagine plucking all the problems from your life. Set them aside (just for a moment).
Be thankful for it.
What’s always left, when I pull out the problems?
People to love.
A roof, food, books, board games, libraries, fresh air, clean water. Our ability to choose our thoughts.
When I pluck out my problems and get back to basics, happiness always comes to me in one minute flat.
Enjoy your thanks and your giving today!
Sending love around the world from Australia,
See & listen to the String Quintet in our music room playing ‘Jacaranda Snow.’ The piano score is printed in my new picture book!
Jacarandas are busy snowing in Sydney, and everywhere I go I’m hearing stories of kids who’ve read and loved my picture book OR from people who were jacaranda babies. It’s not too late to get Jacaranda Snow for someone you love! Overseas buyers can purchase here; Aussie buyers please purchase here. Thank you for your support! The entire project has been a labour of love. Helene Magisson’s illustrations are gorgeous, Alex Lau’s music is divine and Educalme’s FREE online growth mindset course is amazing,
