Cup of Joe: Today is Thanksgiving! And So Is Tomorrow!
Yay! Today is Thanksgiving! FEED ME TURKEY!
Ok so I know what you are thinking, Um Joe, Thanksgiving was two days ago! But, you are wrong, and in this post I am going to prove it to you. Your thanksgiving may have been two days ago, but mine is today. You see, in my family we all have different places to go on Thanksgiving which means that usually we end up celebrating together on the Saturday after. I know it sounds crazy, but if you have ever met any of my family, you would see that crazy works for us!
Oh, and tomorrow is Thanksgiving as well! YAY More turkey! And the day after that, more Thanksgiving! In fact I am not going to stop with Thanksgiving! I am not sure how long the turkey will last, but I guess I can always buy more.
If you haven’t already figured it out, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Of course the food is amazing but the best part of Thanksgiving is the reminder of how awesome my life is! I have an amazing family, an awesome business that I own, in an industry that is on the cutting edge of technology. Everyday I have the fortunate pleasure to learn new things and continue to grow as a human being. I am truly fortunate and extremely grateful for it all! Which is why I should be mindful and grateful all year long, not just on one day a year!
If you are reading this post it means that you too extremely fortunate! 7 out of 10 people in the world do not even have access to the internet. Almost a billion people in the world are undernourished. And another billion don’t even have access to clean water. When you consider all of that, it isn’t hard to see how fortunate all of us are!
Which is why I want to celebrate Thanksgiving everyday! Being thankful on a regular basis, for what you have is important. Being thankful helps keep your ego in check. Being thankful helps you keep moving forward. Being thankful will improve your disposition and make you more productive!
So you see, today is Thanksgiving, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and the next day is Thanksgiving! If you want, you can keep celebrating as well! The choice is yours!
