We live in a time of rapid change and with change comes stress. It is all too easy to become caught up on what is wrong, what we don’t have, what we want, what others think, etc. Since next Thursday is Thanksgiving, it seems only appropriate to take a moment to let our many blessings rise to the surface of awareness and with open heart give thanks for them.
The coming national holiday gives us opportunity to stop the internal chatter and shift our attention with gratitude toward the gifts that have been given to us, the ones we’ve earned through our work and the ones we have given to others.
As massage therapists we can give back to our community this holiday season by offering chair massage or volunteering our time at such places in Tulsa as The Iron Gate, John 3:16, The Food Bank, or go to Volunteer Tulsa for more suggestions.
What will you be doing over Thanksgiving? Whatever you choose to do, give thanks. Happy Thanksgiving from the Massage Therapy department!
