I am honored to once again be hosting the Carnival of Healing… and wow – the 231st edition… I think the first one I hosted was only in the double digits. It’s a great Carnival so I’m not at all surprised it’s way up into the 200′s now.
Since it’s November, and in the States we are looking toward Thanksgiving, I thought I’d surround this Carnival with the theme of Gratitude.
I’d like to start off with Astrid Lee’s entry. A beautiful affirmation: I love Myself as I love Others. A wonderful mantra to begin our Gratitude themed Carnival.
Next, let’s check out Rick, over at Tasting Victory who asks Why Fear? I love his question, “why should any of us have faith in fear?”
I also loved Erin Pavlina’s post about navigating through fear and taking action on your dreams with the help of a challenge buddy.
I’m always grateful for things that make me question my fear and help with self-empowerment.
In addition to what Jennifer Walden offers to help us live well every day, I would add, starting your day with a practice of Gratitude is a wonderful way to start the day with a sense of peace.
Who isn’t grateful for some rest and relaxation? I love Teresa Jordan’s commentary about the differences between rest and sloth, and how, sloth has much to teach us.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always grateful for recipes and solid information on eating healthy.
If you’ve been considering a plant-based diet, Colleen Boucher has some great recipes, and a piece on her experience making the transition over at her blog.
And also on the subject of food: Ingredients to Eliminate from Your Diet.
As the mom of an 8 year old girl, I was grateful for Laura Grace Walden’s post: When Girls Think Their Looks Mean Everything. She includes a list of resources to help girls feel secure in who they are.
We’ve got to be grateful for humor and entertainment, right? I’m ending this month’s Carnival with Mad Kane’s Lush Limerick. Not only do I love her rendition, but the submissions from other folks are wonderful as well!
That’s it for this edition – thank you to everyone that contributed!
Next month, Ms. Astrid Lee will be hosting the Carnival of Healing over at her blog, Therapeutic Reiki.
