I wanted to take a moment from shoving food into my face to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Despite the personal challenges I have faced in my life, I have much to be thankful for. I am thankful for my family and friends, for my good health, my home, the food I eat, my skills and talents, and the abundance of opportunity that surrounds me.
Life is what it is. I say this all the time but I really should start saying is life is what you make of it. If you spend most of your time complaining and reflecting on the bad things that happen to you, then life is going to suck pennies. If you spend time appreciating the good things in your life, though, then you will always have double rainbows.
So once you have your fill of L-Tryptophan, take a moment to reflect on all that is right with your world. You may find that life is much more wonderful than you first thought.
And now, back to the feast!
P.S. Also take time to remember those people who aren’t fortunate enough to have food or family this Thanksgiving. Fill up a couple of plates and visit neighbors, friends, or associates who may be spending Thanksgiving alone. They’ll appreciate the company.
Or make a donation to the hunger relief organization of your choice so that others may be blessed with healthy meals too.
