Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. This time of year causes us to pause and reflect on what all we have to be Thankful for!

As I sit here to ponder over all that I have to be thankful for, so many memories of the year floods my mind. Some good, some sad. But with each “thing” that passes, whether it be good or bad, it always teaches me something. Learning from your experiences are what makes you grow!
Sometimes people, myself included, get caught up into the “wants” of life. Instead, we should try to focus on our NEEDS first. Don’t get me wrong…..I like new things, I like dreaming of having certain things, but at the end of the day, I can look back and see that all my needs have been met. And how THANKFUL I need to be for that.
Thanksgiving holiday naturally draws us to start looking over our life. It’s a great time to slow down before the rush of Christmas starts. We all know what a whirlwind that can be! So in the hustle of trying to plan out your Thanksgiving holiday, whether it be with family or friends, take the time to slow down. Jot down what you are thankful for.
Write it down
A good place to begin is just take a plain piece of paper and pen. Those of you that know me or have been following me, know I LOVE to write things out. Not on a computer or my phone, but physically on paper with a pen. I might even use a pretty orange pen for Thanksgiving! lol
Start jotting down everything that has happened this year that you are thankful for. At first you may think you won’t have enough to write down, but once you get going, you’ll be surprised when you look back over the list after you’ve poured your heart out onto that paper! This is what Thanksgiving is all about.
I wish all of you reading this the best of Thanksgiving and whether you’re enjoying in the company of loved ones, or even if you’re alone….know that I am here for you…and thankful for YOU my reader!
