Happy Thanksgiving folks! I hope you’re all lucky enough to be spending the day with loved ones, and stuffing yourselves full of delicious food. Sometimes between the baking, and the cooking, and the cleaning so my house looks presentable for guests…it’s a little hard to focus on giving thanks on Thanksgiving Day. But I’m going to do my best! In fact, it’s something I’m going to work on for the entire Holiday season. I have so much to be grateful for. I get to wake up with my best friend every day, in my cozy house, in my safe neighborhood, and travel to a good paying job that I (usually) enjoy, w/out fear of violence or persecution. I have food on my table and people that love me. It’s a truly wonderful thing that I dare not take for granted.
So if you’d like to practice gratefulness with me, I’ll leave you with this quote from the great and powerful Oprah Winfrey. Can you tell I dig Oprah?
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
