Turkey time is around the corner and its time to give thanks and praise for all that makes us grateful this holiday season. What makes you thankful? Is it having good family and friends? Are you thankful for having food on your plate or a roof over your head? I know I am. This time of the year always makes me reflect on certain things in my life and how fortunate I am for what I have. It also makes me reflect on certain things that I can do to make things better for myself and those that I care about.
I really have a lot of plans for this blog. I really want to see it soar and I def. have some ideas for getting it there. Oh, if only there were more hours in the day! I wish I could work on it non-stop sometimes. This blog has been generating income but not enough to replace going to work. Still, it has always been in the back of my head to write. I have always been one of these people who love to write. I would write buckets of poetry as a kid and it keep it to myself for the most part. I would write about everything from what was happening with school on that day to the inner working of the universe (Oh yes. I was that kind of kid). I guess what I am trying to say is that I love to write. I am fortunate to be able to do it and mark my own little corner of the internet world.
Practicing the art of appreciation is so important. It can make you happier and just a better human being in general. Have you ever met anyone who was spoiled and ungrateful? I have and I have decided that’s not how I want to be. This is me every time I meet someone who is like that:
So I guess what I am trying to say is to enjoy your thanksgiving holiday. If you will be visiting friends and family, then make sure you take the time to tell them how much you love them and appreciate them. That might sound cheesy but you just never know how this story will end. That’s not to sound depressing or anything like that but just a reminder that tomorrow is never guaranteed. If your family is anything like mine, then they can drive you insane but I know they love me and want the best for me. At least I think that most of the time. Sometimes I think they are just wanting to kill me but I am fortunate to have them. Anyone who has ever had any relatives can relate, I am sure.
To make things short, have a happy thanksgiving! Appreciate what you have and make time for the ones you love. Everything else is just gravy (no pun intended).
