THANKSGIVING WEEK

Happy Thanksgiving Week from me to you!!! May your week be full of love and gratitude not just this week but all year long!!!


As you head into your Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a few things with you to make your Thanksgiving a little more special this year.


Origin of Thanksgiving per Wikipedia:

Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

In the United States, Thanksgiving history is almost always traced back to 1621 and the event which is commonly known as the First Thanksgiving. It was celebrated by the Pilgrim Fathers, a group of European settlers of the Plymouth Colony, which is today part of the state of Massachusetts. The Pilgrims were celebrating their first harvest in the New World and marked the occasion with a lavish three-day feast, which was attended by both Pilgrims and Native Americans.


Sometimes we get lost in the turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce and forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving.


We get lost in what the Black Friday adds.


We get lost in the football games.


We let the things we love pass right by us such as…….the blessing of the chatter of friends and family……or the pitter patter of little feet running all over the house….or the smell of Thanksgiving……or the feeling of a hug a loved one……or the words “Mom” a million times.


Stop.


Pause.


Soak in every moment.


Soak in ALL that Thanksgiving has to offer you this year.


We ALL have something to be thankful for….not just on Thanksgiving but each and every day. Intentionally connect yourself and your heart to that “something”.


And don’t forget about what you are thankful for about yourself.


So many times when we are asked “what are you thankful for” and we go to outside of us to things or other people…..what are YOU thankful for about YOURSELF?

Maybe you are a faithful servant?

Maybe you have a heart of gold?

Maybe you are an amazing cook?

Don’t forget to highlight and be thankful for things about yourself too!


Here are 5 questions to ask yourself this week as we head into Thanksgiving Day:


1. How does the feeling of being thankful feel like inside your body?

2. How does gratitude relate to love?

3. What are some intangible things you are thankful for?

4. What is the greatest gift you have ever received?

5. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without…….


My goal is for you to PAUSE and take time to INTENTIONALLY think about what you are thankful for in your life.


Being thankful actually has a positive effect on our physical body.


Here are just a few things being thankful can do for you:


Improves physical health.

Improves psychological health.

Improves sleep.

Improves self-esteem.

Increases mental strength.


We so often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude and thankfulness.

The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.


Happy Thanksgiving!


Hugs,

Coach Kammy
