Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving was originally celebrated in 1621, it was used as a time to stop and think, to reflect and redirect. To think about what we have, not what we want, to put others before ourselves. To think about family and friends, but it’s also the time to think about people we don’t like, people that are less fortunate, people that have died, and people that are suffering. The true meaning of Thanksgiving is not about selfish and self absorbed reasons, it’s about putting others before ourselves and it’s about putting people we don’t like and reconnecting with those we have forgotten ahead of our own needs.
