Happy THANKSGIVING! I sit here and it’s past 1 am in the morning. I contemplated even writing a post only because I am extremely tired however, I get constant LOVE all year long from all of my readers so this is the least I can do.
This past year has been a roller coaster to say the least. Lot’s of major changes went on in my life and there were many days where I didn’t feel like I had anything to be “Thankful” for. Of course just as seasons pass so do moods and feelings. Don’t we all get stagnant at times in our lives, I know I have hit some pretty rough moments where I just felt stuck.
It did however dig really deep into my soul to really pull out everything I could possibly be thankful for. That is what I think we should all do. Is it hard, yes! Can you do it, YES! But you have to surrender everything inside of your soul to truly find beauty in everything around you. Being thankful is a beautiful thing and it’s even more beautiful when you finally realize all you have in your path.
Thanksgiving isn’t just about that one day of the year that your entire family get’s together to eat a grand ole meal and see people that you only see for special occasions. In my eyes this day is about giving thanks to things you have already been giving thanks to.
Some of us don’t have large families that get together. Some of us spend the day alone, because we feel alone. I am not saying any of this is bad but I believe we should reach out to anyone who might feel alone and show them what they have to be thankful for. I will be spending the day with a few people in my family who love me and support me to the depths of my soul. The people who remind me how to be thankful all year long. Just keep in mind there are so many out there who don’t have a family to celebrate this day with. So for me, when you say grace for lunch or dinner please say a prayer for those alone, sad, depressed, angry or lost that they can soon feel love from someone, and possibly enough love to help them recognize what they have to be thankful for.
Take time today to reflect. Jot down some things you might want to work on to become more aware of things in your life that you have to be thankful for. Every morning I wake up and I say thanks to the Universe for allowing me to be on Earth one more beautiful day. Thank you Universe for my healthy body and my hands that are allowing me to type this beautiful message to you tonight. I could go on for days but we ALL have so much to be thankful for. Lord knows I am already thankful for my dads yams tomorrow… hehe
Take a moment to put yourself in someones else’s shoes. Not literally peeps. But seriously you never know the battles others are facing. Is it out job to judge? Is it our job to tell others what we think they should do? NO! It is our job to be understanding and loving. After all, love is the answer. Plus if you trust in the Universe then you will feel safe knowing that all things come to us at the perfect times. We may not know it now but lord knows we will figure it out one day. On another note these shoes are FIRE, right!
Last but not least. I am so THANKFUL for my loving home that I can provide for me and my son. It may not be a mansion but boy I can tell you it is FILLED with so much LOVE! I have an idea this Holiday season. The weather is getting colder and let’s teach kids and adults a loving lesson. Collect old blankets, scarves or sweaters and pass them out to those in homeless shelters or people you might just see on the streets. They will be thankful and in return you will get so much that you will be thankful for. It’s how the Universe works friends. Karma.
I love you all and I would not be here if it were not for YOU! So Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!!!!
