I’m going to go out on a limb here and venture that you didn’t know today – January 21st – is National Hugging Day. That’s right – hugging. Like you do with a romantic partner, dog, or favorite stuffed animal. There are many benefits to hugging you may not be aware of – so today, we’re going to celebrate hugging and find reasons to be thankful for the hugs in our lives.

It’s MLK Day, so today we are going to explore gratitude for influencers and change agents. Look up the term “change agent” on the Google and you’re likely to first see a lot of discussion about an individual who creates change within an organization. I’m taking a broader approach to the term, viewing it more in terms of someone who is using their skills, confidence, power, relationships, and personal courage to make a positive difference in any avenue of life or corner of the world.

Today our podcast meditation focuses on communication. There are many, many ways to communicate. We are probably decent enough at at least one of them. Some of us are better at multiple forms of communication. Some of us may not be as good at communicating as we’d like to be. The point isn’t to rate yourself or evaluate yourself. The goal is to examine reasons you are grateful for whatever form communication takes in your life and for the messages that come to you through it.

Get in the G Zone

We come up against the need for closure when relationships end, people die, we lose a job, or some other big – often sudden and unexpected – change occurs in our life. Letting go of something that was once important can be difficult, and many people seek closure in doing so. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes searching for it is a lost cause. The question today is whether or not we can find gratitude for whatever degree of closure we’ve had for situations seemingly left unended.

In this podcast meditation, we’re going to explore the nature of habits. A habit is a regular tendency or usual manner of behavior that often has become nearly or completely involuntary. It may be a pattern acquired by frequent repetition. We have a tendency often to think of habits as bad things that must be reformed – but habits can be good. Let’s consider the habits we have for which we are grateful, habits we might want to develop, and habits we’re happy to release.

Today our podcast meditation focuses on gratitude for teachers and the whole concept of education. When you think about it, we really do have a LOT for which to thank teachers, because almost anything you know how to do, you learned because someone taught you. From tying your shoes to reading to making macaroni and cheese – someone probably taught you the foundations so you could go on and master those things yourself. Let's express gratitude to those who have taught us.
