Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it’s time for all of us to be thankful! This Thanksgiving be thankful! Every year I like to stop and reflect on all the good in my life. I like to remember what Thanksgiving is all about and share my gratitude. It’s the perfect time to check in with yourself by remembering what’s special and amazing about your life and about this time of year. Be thankful!
No matter what happened this year, no matter what problems occurred, we all have many things to be thankful for. This week take a moment for yourself and remember all the good in your life! It’s so easy to let Thanksgiving sweep you away. It can be overwhelming, whether you’re hosting dinner or visiting family. This year decide not to let it be! Remember what this holiday is all about; giving thanks. It’s about gratitude for all that’s happened this past year.
I first like to think about all the wonderful people in my life. Thank you wonderful people! I’m extremely lucky to have so many great friends and family stretching from coast to coast. This Thanksgiving will be the first time I’m not spending the holiday with my east coast family and while it’s a bummer, I’m so lucky to have an amazing west coast family to spend it with. Plus, I’m grateful to be able to host Thanksgiving for my friends who are here. Exciting!
Next I like to reflect on all the wonderful events I’ve taken part in this past year. I’ve seen four of my close friends get married. Woo, congratulations! I spent lots of quality time with my nephew and saw him grow into a handsome little boy. He’s such a cutie! I celebrated one year of marriage with the love of my life. It’s been amazing! Plus I produced and starred in two successful web series, launching both on my comedy Youtube channel Pillow Talk TV. What a great year!
Even if your year hasn’t been what you thought it would be, even if there were sadness and loss, there are always things to be thankful for! Just remember, take some time for yourself over the holidays. Make sure you don’t let tomorrow pass without remembering how great you are and what’s important and special in your life!
I have a challenge for you. This year I’m writing down everything that I’m thankful for and I want you to join me. Everything that’s good and makes me happy, plus all the things that challenge and inspire me. I’m writing them all down! Then next Thanksgiving, I’ll revisit my list, add to it and enjoy what’s changed. Express your gratitude along with me and love all the joy and smiles that flow your way.
Life is challenging and it’s often easy to forget what a blessing it is to be alive. Even walking and talking are things to be thankful for! We’re all lucky to be living in such a unique and special moment in time. But this moment will pass and time will keep moving forward. So throw away all the silliness of the holidays and enjoy them. This Thanksgiving be thankful! Embrace the day and all the joy that it brings to your friends and your family. Happy Thanksgiving!
This Thanksgiving be thankful and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
