November blows in with its cooler air and always makes me stop and pay attention. With a holiday like Thanksgiving, November begs us to give a little love to the things that have gone unappreciated throughout the year. In some ways, Thanksgiving is such a simple holiday. All we have to do is be together, eat together, and be thankful. How lovely is that? In my house, we go around the table and make everyone share at least one thing they are grateful for. If you don’t already, start this tradition this year. Or maybe keep a journal where, each year, your family and/or guests write down what they are thankful for (how about a Bestie for each year, or recording it in your planner?). What an amazing way to document how life changes over the years.
Maybe 2017 hasn’t been your year. Maybe you are looking forward to the start of 2018 as a fresh, new beginning. I get it. But I would encourage you to take some time - real, personal, quiet time - and write down some of the small gifts you received in 2017. No matter how bad a day or week or month or year, there are always these diamonds in the rough if you look for them. These are the things we must show our gratitude for.
In 2017, our STARTplanner team is thankful for.
Can I have 4? I can't narrow it down?
Oh, one more.
We are sharing our gratitude with you and we encourage you to share yours with the people you love. May November bring you a time of the deepest thanks, love for the little things, and the lovely simplicity of Thanksgiving.
