Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I've decided to start the celebration a little early. Yesterday was a great day of laughter and playing both with some new friends and with my wonderful fiancé. Today I plan to continue that cheerful mood of celebration as I work in the morning and then begin preparing for tomorrow's feast. It is easy to get excited on holidays when laughter and celebration flow naturally. Yet every day we have the choice to celebrate. How will you choose to celebrate today? What small shifts can you make to allow you to celebrate every day? For me, gratitude is a huge part of my celebration. I'm so grateful for the delicious smells of the apple pie I baked last night and I'm so grateful to be able to share it with the people I love tomorrow. I'm grateful for my aunt passing along some great tips on making it. I'm grateful for the uplifted and friendly mood of people at the store. I'm grateful to see people celebrating the holiday with their own little adaptations. I'm grateful for the bright orange color of the ceramic pumpkin next to me on the table and I'm grateful to still have the scraggly little fabric turkey that I made when I was in junior high. I'm grateful for this joy I feel celebrating a day of thanks and I'm grateful to begin a day early! What are you grateful for today? Who are you grateful for in your life? May your day be blessed with thanks that fill your heart and flow over onto those around you! Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
