Earlier this week, I wrote about embracing the philosophy of “everything in moderation” when it comes to food, especially during the holidays. Though I still feel strongly about this message, today the focus is about appreciating and being thankful for all that you have. It is Thanksgiving, after all!
As for me, I’m thankful for the warmth and love that Boyfriend and puppy Bella bring to our home. I’m thankful that my sisters, nieces, parents, and step parents are all close by and that I’m fortunate enough to get to spend this time with them. I’m thankful for my good health and motivation to take care of myself.
Though there are inevitably tough times, I have an immense amount to be thankful for. So that’s where I’m going to focus my energy. Not dwelling on how many calories I’ve eaten, or how many calories I didn’t burn. Instead, I’ll focus on continuing to take good care of myself so that now and throughout the year I can continue to enjoy and appreciate all that I have in my life.
I hope you have a truly wonderful, joyful, and fulfilling Thanksgiving holiday. Appreciate the time with your loved ones, and take a moment to really think about all of the things you have to be thankful for.
Cheers, and happy Thanksgiving!
