Give and Thanks 施與受

Updated: Dec 4, 2019

Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving! With so much happening (like Rony’s Masterclass this Sunday!) there isn’t much time to take a long break, but I still want to celebrate by reflecting on the sentiment behind the holiday.


Finding something to be thankful for this year is a piece of cake ( or turkey as my friend pointed out). Rereading my newsletter from last year I can say that the list of things I’m grateful for remains much the same . My family, friends, job, and home make me feel lucky constantly. Still, this year, like every year, feels different to me, and I challenged myself to look a little closer into why. What I came up with was an overwhelming deeper appreciation that runs through my daily life. How did that happen?


I think the answer lies in a careful dance between give and thanks.


This year, I paid closer attention to the people and things I felt a balance between giving and receiving with. I’ve been blown away with the level of generosity in help, advice, support, “I love you’s” , and acts of kindness that were directed my way, but also, of the amounts I was able to give of myself. I realized that I felt the most gratitude when I could enjoy the roles of being both giver and receiver. I got better at choosing people and projects that feed back into this give and thanks loop, thereby amplifying all of our thankfulness, happiness, and connection .


I’m especially grateful for the give and take we exchange in our classes. Your energy and attitudes bring out the best of me and help me pay it back to my students and onwards to other areas of my life!


Wishing you a day of happy giving and receiving!



Keep moving! xx, Katie



感恩節快樂!

幾個禮拜前我和大家分享我下高雄拍攝 Zumba 全球教學影片的經驗。雖然整個過程真是一個

感恩節快樂!最近真的是滿滿的活動 (像是這周日Rony大師課的公益派對 ) ,沒有太多的時間休息或放假,但是我仍然想要應景地感性一下來慶祝感恩節。


對我來說,今年要列出感恩事項並不困難。重讀去年的電子報,可以說我的感恩清單並沒有太大的變動。因為我的家人、朋友、工作與我的家,持續地讓我覺得幸運無比。然而,今年(就像是每一年)感覺不一樣。因而,我挑戰自己試著去更深入地瞭解,這個「感覺不一樣」的原因。我發現答案竟是日覆一日深度的感恩。這,究竟是怎麼發生的呢?


我想這應該是來自施與受(感謝)之間的平衡。今年,於待人處世上我特別注意,在樂於付出的同時真心接受。因此,出乎意料地得到大量的支持、幫助、建議與「我愛妳」,也同時提醒自己時時付出。我發現當同時成為給與者與接受者時,我最能真誠地感恩。


為了能讓我持續保持這個施與受的循環,我越來越會選擇合作的對象與計劃,來強化我們的感恩、幸福與連結。


特別感謝在我們課堂上施與受的相互傳遞,你的能量與態度帶出最棒的我,也幫助我回饋到其他學生身上,甚至到我生活中的其他層面。


希望你能享受一個充滿施與受、美好能量的一天!



繼續前進!


愛你的 Katie
