Two days before 2022— the new year. How can we celebrate + reflect?  And it came to me. I just want to say thank you. 
When I started the podcast I always thought about using the initials of PRETTYSMART, P.S. because each episode feels like a love letter. Today is my love letter to you. 
I think some years are questions, and some years  are answers. We’ve asked a lot of brilliant people questions this year and one of the big takeaways I’ve had is that while it is really important to be a seeker, the ANSWER always lies within you. Everything you need is inside of YOU. This podcast, our guests, this platform, and most of all, your messages have made me realize that. And so I want to thank you for giving me so much.
My wish for you this year is that you find both fulfillment and peace. In whatever relationship is causing you stress, in a work environment that feels frustrating, or even in your self work. 
Fulfillment and peace are both fluid I think. They are never going to be things we can grab onto all of the time, but they are good north stars. So whichever kind of year this is for you- whether it’s one of questions or one of answers, know that wherever you are right now is where you are meant to be. 
As a thank you to you today’s pod is a gratitude meditation to take us into the new year. Feel free to download it onto your phone to replay throughout the year.  And you know this wouldn’t be PRETTYSMART if I didn’t hit you with some facts. So we know now that gratitude literally changes our brain— It increases feelings of security and connectedness. It helps squeeze out negative feelings, and keeps the good ones aroundd longer…positive emotions tend to be like Teflon – they slide off us way too quickly. Gratitude lets us hang on to the positive for longer, and celebrate the good in our lives that we might otherwise move on too quickly from. It’s shown to help reduce anxiety and depression. And most of all it FEELS GOOD.
And we are so today lucky because none other than Jessie De Low recorded our gratitude meditaiton. She is really amazing at what she does…people all over the world try to book sessions with Jessie and we have our own special session with her today.
