Now that the holiday season is upon us, we think it’s the perfect time to reflect. This year has had its share of highs and lows, but we’ve been reminded of the need to be grateful for everything good that has come to pass. During this holiday, we encourage you to find time for yourself to not only reflect, but to consider all that you are grateful for. We both commit to be more intentional, and to express our gratitude daily, as it’s often easy to focus on everything that is not going well in our lives. Here are some ways that we plan to practice gratitude moving forward:
- Live with an abundance mindset
- Keep a gratitude journal
- Openly express your gratitude to others
- Give thanks for one good thing each day
- Pay it forward
As you reflect on what you can do to show your thanks and gratitude daily, make time and space to be kind to yourself. A large part of developing the best version of yourself is certainly being kind to others, but most importantly being kind to yourself. As we focus on abundance, we are more likely to manifest positivity around us. We encourage you to see each day as a new opportunity to grow and further develop the best parts of yourself… just don’t forget to enjoy great wine with equally great people!
Our featured wine for this month is B. Leighton “Gratitude” Yakima Valley Red Blend. This wine is described as “beautiful, luscious and alive – Gratitude opens up to blackberry, violet and mint. Yet reaches back and flows with complex notes of lemon thyme, orange zest, morels and marjoram. Rich, yet elegant and lovely to drink. It finishes with crushed rock, white pepper and baking spices. Another wine to be thankful for.”
Blend: 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 5% Syrah.
