Today, I (Ali) was traveling down Creston Road and a beautiful sporty car came out of nowhere and sped in front of me as though tearing for the finish line in the Indy 500. Seriously…it was going fast. A lovely, small black bird with white wing tips tried to fly low across the road just as the car zoomed forward. The small bird got sucked up in right tire and hood of the car and fell limp to the ground within seconds on left side of the vehicle. The driver didn’t even notice the bird and kept going the same speed as before. But my heart stopped and a sick feeling and sadness filled me as the bird lay lifeless on the pavement. I felt helpless as there was nothing I could do.
As this bird lie motionless, it reminded me about how so much damage is caused by us and to each other. Sometimes we move so mindlessly, so involved in our own thing that we bulldoze over others without even recognizing that we have hurt someone’s feelings or seriously wounded someone’s heart. I’ve been guilty of this myself before. Are you speeding through life?
Thanksgiving is almost upon us and Christmas is just around the corner. Sometimes spending more time with family can ignite our own personal triggers, but this year, we hope you remember the bird and slow down; become more mindful. Might there be a better way to resolve whatever challenging situation arises? Whatever you do…don’t be a turkey. Try gentleness this year—toward yourself and toward others. See what a difference it can make.
If you’d like us to help you with that gentleness, come treat yourself or someone else to our pumpkin facial special or enjoy a sound therapy session special below. We hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!
We wish you all the best and optimal health!
