I don’t t know about you, but Thanksgiving for me has always been a time to reflect. I reflect about my year…, thanking my stars about the good and brooding about the bad.
Well thIs year, I want to approach Thanksgiving in a different way. I will reflect on this year. I will thank my stars for all that’s happened- good and bad. I will take the good and use it to propel me into 2018. I will take the bad and use it as a lesson on what not to do in 2018.
This year has been a defining year for me. It has taught me to wake up, sit up, reflect on, shake off and move on with life. It has taught me that the things that we think are small, and take for granted, are actually the bigger things in life…, the reason most of us live. So as we gather later today, and reflect on what we are thankful for, don’t only appreciate the big things…, appreciate the small things too. Things that we take for granted like living, breathing, listening, talking, walking, bees, birds, spiders and all the little things happening around us. Believe me, they matter more than we know.
Happy Thanksgiving, from my family to yours!
