This has been BY FAR my least favorite Thanksgiving ever. This year has been incredibly difficult for many reasons for me, mostly because of issues in others’ lives around me that I have no control over but am impacted by. But that doesn’t mean I’m not thankful. I think I’ve found and felt more gratitude in my life during this difficult year than in any previous year.
I have so much in my life to be thankful for, and I have tried to make it a daily habit to recognize that. I’m thankful for all the amazing and wonderful people I have in my life, for a body that can exercise, for the races I’ve been able to complete, for a job that I love, for enough resources to pay my bills and travel, for a place to live/food to eat/heat and air conditioning/ fresh and safe water, etc… I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the things that I’ve been given this year.
This song has been on my mind a lot recently:
