A time for reflection and gratitude.

I’m getting to the age where I’m starting to enjoy Thanksgiving more than Christmas. It’s less frantic, less commercial, more chill. It’s food, which is not any different from Christmas, but it subs out flash and pizzazz for mindfulness and thankfulness. Don’t get me wrong – Christmas is still my #1 favorite… but Thanksgiving is my very close and quiet #2.

Thanksgiving offers a wonderful opportunity to not only revel in the company of one’s loved ones with food and general coziness, but also to reflect on the abundance, both physical and emotional, that we have yet often neglect.

This year I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my relatively good health. I am thankful for my passion. I am thankful for my accelerating drive. I am thankful for my ability to observe, to acknowledge, and to learn. I am mindful of all that I have learned in the past year, and my experience that allows me to put that knowledge into practice. I am mindful and excited for what next year’s Thanksgiving will mean to me.
