An attitude of gratitude is a valuable holistic tool.
Dancing joyfully between your life’s mission and your daily tasks, the big picture and the details, your long-range aspirations and recycling your trash is one way to describe holistic living. When I’m in that holistic zone, I’m feeling really good, dancing inside like Snoopy’s best cartoon
jig. Then there are those times when I’ve morphed into a Velcro ping-pong ball on a Velcro table: stuck, stuck, stuck. Doesn’t matter whether it’s the big picture or the little, stuck is characterized by frustration, or angst, or despair, or ___________. (I invite you to fill in your “favorite.” Seriously, why not grab a pen right now and get personal? Moving muscles demonstrates willingness, which in turn opens new nerve pathways for new thought patterns.)
