Fall in love for Thanksgiving
- Category: Holidays and Special Occasions
What do you love? Who do you love? Who or what might you love if you opened your eyes and your heart? Are you ready to embrace and let your soul reap new joy this Thanksgiving?
Eating disorders narrow your vision and pinch your heart until you are almost oblivious. The weight of your obsession flattens your soul until almost all your thoughts and feelings are governed by eating disorder demands and commands.
"Almost" is the key and life saving word. As long as you are alive the spark of life within you can bring light, awareness, love, health and happiness to your life. How do you nurture that spark?
We are approaching Thanksgiving. Regardless of what is going on in your life you are here in a living universe where possibilities abound. Can you allow yourself to slow down and do some time lapse observing in the world around you? Schwartzberg uses his eyes, his heart and his camera to lead us with his glorious video.
Can you free your heart and eyes to see beyond the limits of your eating disordered world? If you can you will discover love, beauty and an ever present gratefulness to warm your soul.
