Thanksgiving is a holiday we’re all used to knowing is about getting together with family, friends, loved ones, and enjoying time with football and food.
Lots of food.
It’s also a reminder for a time to be thankful for all we’ve been given in our lives. We don’t have to get into the technical and historical meaning of the day, because for me that doesn’t have to take precedence.
The day is THANKSGIVING, but it doesn’t have to be just one day. We can use the day as a reminder to renew our thanks for the upcoming year. To take a moment each day, especially the more challenging ones, to think about what we have – versus what we DON’T have.
This year, for me, it’s been all about being THANKFUL for the opportunities that have been placed in front of me and being THANKFUL for the support of those around me who love me enough to want to see me succeed. It’s about being THANKFUL for those who allow me to coach and train them and teach them in class – that they trust me as their friend and as their coach to be there and encourage them to pursue their own greatness in life.
For the upcoming year, I’ll work on maintaining my ground with a focus on family and building myself up to be the best person I can for those I love and work with – I can never lose focus on what’s most important, but always do my best to help us lead the best life we can.
As we all GIVE THANKS and do so through feasts and eats, a QUICKIE WORKOUT wouldn’t hurt to get us ripe and in the mood tomorrow morning, right? So, this will be what I squeeze in before I start the cooking festivities:
