It’s very easy to feel unsatisfied with life, especially in a culture where we’re constantly told we need MORE, MORE, MORE. I have an abundance of goals I hope to achieve and sometimes I find my eyes fixated on the goals, missing the passing sights along the way.
I found myself feeling somewhat unsettled through out Thanksgiving dinner. Somewhere between catching up with the family and asking my uncle whether he wanted a medal or monument for not going up for seconds, I found myself thinking of all that I have not yet accomplished, instead of being thankful for all the love and blessings I have around me.
There are so many things I want; sometimes I forget all the things I already have.
My parents have been my biggest cheerleaders and supporters my entire life and I’d like to say thanks to them, since they are the steady foundation I can always count on when the rug feels pulled from under me (it happens often, and I bruise like a peach).
Yes, Thanksgiving was yesterday. But I’ll say my “this year I’m thankful for” now, and answer “my parents.”
