As we enter November, Bernie and I have gratitude on our minds. It’s been 3 years since Bernie and I reconnected, and he began practicing Body Kindness. In this special episode, we reflect on the positive changes in his life and self compassion practice over time.
We asked listeners to take a pause and share with us “what are you grateful for, big or small”. We also share our original conversation from 2016 where we talk about why gratitude matters to Body Kindness, and how a gratitude practice can be an important key to unlocking your “inner caregiver” voice and lead to more joy throughout the holiday season, even if you’re thinking about past holidays filled with “rules” “judgments” and emotional pain and wondering what “body kindness” looks like for you this year. We feel you.
We hope this episode inspires you for finding gratitude in whatever comes to your mind. Maybe it’s a person in your life, a meaningful life event, acknowledging what is good through injury or disability, or something else that rings true for you. As you listen, we ask you to think of a few “good things” even if it’s really hard right now. Then join us all month long as we share gratitude on Instagram. Follow our posts and tag us on yours.
