Whether it's crossing your fingers for good luck, or experiencing a more formal "rite of passage," science is showing us that rituals can help us heal, thrive, and perform at our best.
What if you pay attention to all the ways you already use ritual in your life to move through transitions and bring out the best in yourself and others?
What if you create a NEW ritual this week to build a sense of teamwork, community and/or shared purpose?
What if you participate in a ritual or ceremony to honor the memories of those who have served our country and those who have blessed you on your own life's journey?
I look forward to hearing about your rituals and how they have impacted your life! Please share your ideas and comments below.
May you have a blessed and meaningful Memorial Day weekend.
With special gratitude to those who have given their lives in service to us all...
"In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me;
As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on…"
