Happy Thanksgiving friends!
Can I be honest? I didn’t want to make this podcast…gratitude was feeling more like a forced smile. But I knew that was the very reason I needed make it.
I’m not naive to hard things. My passport has the stamps to prove it, just like yours probably does. I know the weight of hardship and all consuming hurt. Holidays can bring out the tender places and resurface our stories with twisted endings. Perhaps this year being thankful is the last thing you feel like subscribing to. Maybe being surrounded by family and friends with different stories than you feels cruel. Or maybe loneliness feels like it’s taking you out at the knees. Friend, I see you and I hear you. We can’t run from our stories and we can’t erase our feelings.
It’s not one or the other, it’s both/and.
