Thanksgiving is a time of year that I always think about what I am grateful for. When you get caught up in the day to day, it can be easy to get aggravated with things that just don't go your way. Not finding a job, trouble finding clients, spilling coffee on a white shirt and anything else that comes your way. It can be aggravating and just ruin your day. I allow these silly things to get me down a lot (especially the coffee spills!)
When Thanksgiving rolls around, I get excited for the holidays. The holiday season has always been a big time of year, even since I was a kid. My mom absolutely loves Christmas and once Thanksgiving hit it was officially Christmas season. I think that's part of the reason why I love it so much. Another part is I get to hang out with family a ton. I don't get to see them a lot through out the year so it's nice to catch up over a few drinks and good food. I lost my grandfather last year and I thought holidays would never be the same. They aren't the same without him but it just goes to show you should appreciate the ones you love and really enjoy your time together. I try to keep my phone tucked away and my mind off work and bills. It's not what's important! At the end of the day, cherish what you have. Laugh a lot with people you love!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
