I hope everyone had a great holiday the past few days. If you didn’t, then I hope the rest of the year is good to you. I ended up spending time with some great people, family, and got to have lots of fun and laughs. That really means more to me than anything. This Thanksgiving has been a really great one and was a little different than other Thanksgivings past. One way it was different was that I hosted Thanksgiving at my home.
This year gratitude took a new meaning than years past. Most everyday for the past year I’ve thought about what I’m thankful for, and if there’s something really good going on, then I appreciate it while it’s happening. There are still those days where I feel purely sarcastic and pessimistic; I realize that’s okay too and it will pass. There’s a quote that goes something like this, “If you don’t appreciate it, then you’ll surely loose it”. That is a deep truth. The more you find something good in one thing, then the more there is to find. There are even gifts in things that go awry, and being able to find those helps us to grow and to move on to better things.
