It’s that time of year! Is acknowledging this year a must? What’s there to be thankful for? It’s more significant than you’d think…
I’ve been hearing through the grapevine that some have chosen to not celebrate this year. Ignoring Thanksgiving 2020 as it’d seem wrong to celebrate. But that’s the entirely wrong mindset to have, in my opinion.
Of course this has been a devastating year. We can’t evade that. And never should. But for many people, it’s made them almost have an outsiders perspective into how they lead their lives. This has made the majority of us, alter what we spend our time doing. It’s signified what’s truly important in life. We couldn’t avoid the tragic events that have affected nearly all of us. Whether that’s a friend or family. Was this the stark realisation that will ultimately change how we live our lives?
Let me ask you this, think of all the tasks and schedules that your day consists of.
Now, think of what would truly matter+/-100 years today.
How much of your life is stifled by routines that have no real impact on our lives. Why were lives the epitome of simplicity years ago, and why do they feel so much more perplexing and difficult to navigate now?
What if tomorrow, all social media sites were abolished. Think of the many days, months years the majority of us have collectively wasted. The newly allocated time we’d have; bewildered what to do with it.
Take this day, to wipe away all the extras we cramp into our lives. Live in the moment. Only do things that make us happy. That will leave a forever lasting memory. Make an impact on yours and someone else’s life.
Going back in time seems foreign to the fast paced life we all lead now. But do we really have to be running rapidly on the treadmill, so fast our legs want to seize up, but we can’t physically get off the treadmill without stopping the machine.
Life is your machine.
You have the remote.
Tomorrow is never promised, this year has taught us a lesson we thought we’d never have to learn.
Your loved ones will be attached to you forever.
Make that count.
Celebrate togetherness today,
Scrap the technological memories our mobile devices automatically make,
Make your own,
And capture what’ll make you smile in time to come.
This year seems almost impossible to be thankful for,
So reminisce, love and be safe.
Happy Thanksgiving ❤️
Now bring on the food!
