A Day of Thanks

On November 25th I will be celebrating Thanksgiving.

This day of thanks is usually known for a humble observance of what one is grateful for, a rowdy football game in the evening and if you are fortunate a day filled with loved-ones, new and old friends, and sometimes relatives you wish would’ve stayed home for the holiday.

I believe that it is an important lesson to take a few moments out of your day to reflect on the good that is currently in your life and not to limit it to one day a year.

I am thankful for:

Being alive and healthy, to be so happy in the work I do at the age of 23, my family, the ability and freedom to believe in what I want, say what I want and go where I want, and the ability to eat on a daily basis and drink clean water.

On the day of thanks I would like to challenge you all to do one random act of kindness, to not limit your thanks to the 25th but to extend it to everyday (or at least try), and to reflect on what is good presently in your life — rather than what is bad, what you want, or what the past has done to you.

I wish you all the best on this holiday.

Keep on Keepin’ On.

Peace and Love,

Jeff
