Because tomorrow I very much plan on being too busy to blog, I’m writing my oh-so-original Thanksgiving post right now.
Thanksgiving’s probably my favorite holiday.
Not just because I can shamelessly consume about 35 lbs of food in 8 hours, but because it’s a no-stress day where I can just reflect on all I have.
Throughout the year, we complain.
Every day we complain, really.
Ugh traffic sucks.
Ugh I can’t believe I have to go to work.
Ugh I can’t believe I have to go to school.
Ughhhhh why isn’t my Wi-Fi working?!?!?!
That’s our life.
But not on Thanksgiving.
Nope, on Thanksgiving I make a very concious effort to not complain about anything.
Because when I really stop to think about it, I don’t have anything worth those complaints.
I have an amazing family and a boyfriend as crazy as me who I love dearly.
I have friends, a roof over my head, my health, and an income.
I have the ability to think for myself.
I have the ability to challenge existing beliefs because I have the mental capacity to do so.
I have TiVo and NetFlix and a cat who I treat like my child.
Sure, I have plenty of chaotic days. Days that leave me exhausted.
But that exhaustion comes from actually having things to do.
From actually having goals to work towards.
Yes, my life’s a big hot mess most of the time, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
Because I have everything I’ll ever need.
Actually, I have more.
