Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are surrounded by your loved ones, your belly is full, and your day is packed of love and laughter. I wanted to share with you why Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday. With the pressure that society puts on us, it is so hard to take a step back and be thankful for what we have. We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, and always wanting more and seeking approval from passerbys. We forget how fortunate we are to have people in our lives that love and support us, food on the table, and a roof over our heads. Although it shouldn’t take a Holiday, Thanksgiving brings family together with no added pressure or expectations. Unlike Christmas, or whatever Holiday you and your family celebrates, people don’t have to stress out about the perfect gift or scrounge up money to try to make an impression. Today is about everyone pitching in and sharing memories that will last a lifetime. Thanksgiving is a time that we get to take a break from the chaotic world around us and be present in the moment. The holiday is called THANKSgiving so let’s all be thankful today. For our health, our loved ones, the little things that we take for granted, and most importantly for world peace. I am thankful today for all of the men and women that dedicate their lives to allow us the privilege of living in the best country in the world. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
