It's well after midnight, so maybe not officially Thanksgiving anymore...but that doesn't trump how incredibly thankful I am. Today consisted of way too much food, family members overflowing within my house, and friends that you can spend months away from...yet still pick up right where you left. Days where you are surrounded by those who love, support, and uplift you are the best. There is absolutely no denying that.
I started questioning why we don't have more holidays like Thanksgiving today. Why don't we constantly surround ourselves with positivity? Why are there so many days where I take the blessings in my life for granted? The whole binge eating thing should very intelligently be limited to once per year...yet everything else Thanksgiving stands for should be the way we live our daily lives shouldn't it?
So, as we complete another year of turkeys and pumpkin pie...I challenge you to radiate positivity and graciousness everywhere you go. Truly take the time to think about everything you have been blessed with in your life, and appreciate those people and blessings that have created you to be the person you are today.
That being said, I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes, said by Mother Theresa; a woman who took her circumstances, and made the world better through them.
