It has been a few weeks since I last posted something. This fall has been a crazy ride full of changes and new adventures! Today’s post is out of the ordinary and not about food.
This week is Thanksgiving! My favorite holiday – we all wonder why. Even though this holiday is often neglected and falls in the limelight of Christmas. This year, I get to try my hand at roasting the turkey – aka the big leagues.
This time of year – and I’m sure a lot of you can relate – always makes me reflect and think about life. I have tried to adapt this type of thinking to everyday rather than limiting it to this time of year. Research shows this can make you a happier person.
Happy Habits | This article delves into a few habits for happiness – including gratefulness.
Anywho, per tradition on Thanksgiving, we go around the table and proclaim what we are thankful for this year – I highly suggest giving it a try. Through the years, the answers have changed – from my imaginary friend (good one, Jo) to last year’s -almost being done with college.
This year: it’s about life.
Use this day, instead, to pause and reflect on all the awesomeness of life. Even with all of the things that have changed in my life recently, I am still thankful for the life I live and who I have become. I feel fortunate for all the opportunities I have been afforded, the places I’ve seen, the people who surround me and the life I have been given.
With everything that is going on in the world, we often forget about the good things and the things we truly have to be thankful for in our lives. We find ourselves stressing about a measly dot on the page without thinking about the big picture. We often find ourselves taking our life for granted.
Besides the food, this is why I love Thanksgiving. A holiday dedicated to being thankful – because we all need a little reminder sometimes of how great life really is.
