May you be blessed with a beautiful and joy-filled Thanksgiving holiday, surrounded by good food, laughter, friends, and family.
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for YOU! I thank you all for your love, support, and loyal readership. I encourage you to cherish those special moments with those who mean the most to you--even when they get on your nerves. I.e. If your mom, like my mom, says you "can't peel potatoes to save your life," well, you show her! Thanksgiving is a great time to pat yourself on the back for all your strengths and accomplishments in love and life. Now is the time to remind yourself that life is good, and you can do whatever you put your mind to. You got this!
I also wholeheartedly suggest that you warmly embrace the new people who may show up at your table. Ya know, your brother's new girlfriend who doesn't lift a damn finger in the kitchen! Everyone has a cross to bear, so don't judge them until you've walked in their shoes.
In the meantime, practice gratitude. You CAN be grateful for something this holiday season--no matter what your relationship status. There are benefits to being single, benefits to being in a relationship, and even benefits for the brokenhearted. Remember: The grass isn't always greener somewhere else. It is greener where you water it!
So this Thanksgiving, focus on the positive, find your silver lining, water your grass, and just enjoy living the life you were meant to. Oh, and go easy on the potatoes!
