Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends!
Some of you may be sitting down to a meal with your families and friends, some of you may be cooking up a storm, some may even be a bottle of wine in - or, some of you may be like me - sitting on the couch relaxing and thinking about what this day means.
I swore off cooking Thanksgiving for the entire family after I realized that it caused me more stress than training for a marathon. Don’t get me wrong, I look to cook - but not on holidays. I want to spend my holiday’s resting, relaxing, and enjoying the time I get to spend with family and friends.
Thanksgiving is always an interesting day - because we sit around and think about everything we have to be thankful for, but it makes me wonder why we don’t do this everyday?
Recently, I have been in the practice of going on morning walks with my fur child and listening to audio books. It helps me connect with myself and with everything going on around me - all while keeping me grounded and focused on my goals and intentions. I am a MUCH better person on these days - which reminds me of how I feel on Thanksgiving.
So, I encourage all of you to take some time your YOU today, and every day that follows. Be grateful for the life you live, the people who surround you, and the air you breathe. When we focus on the good - we attract more of it.
Holiday’s may be special - but I’m all for making everyday just the same.
Enjoy every moment :)
