Hey, You Got a Second?: A Series of Random Chats – Thankfully Thankful

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. Happy Thanksgiving week to ya, I hope everything turns out well for whatever you may be up to. What kind of plans do you have? Does it involve travel? That can kinda suck during this time of year, hopefully if you’re heading somewhere you can get to where you need to with relative ease. I’ll be spending time with Katie’s family this year so it should be a nice time. That’s a few days away so in the meantime why don’t we do an activity together? It’ll only take a moment, a second really. In my opinion it’s important to acknowledge what’s happened in ones life, the good and the bad, so that we may learn what we need from the experience(s) and grow. So let’s think about what’s happened this year that we’re thankful and not thankful for and why. I’ll share one thing to get the ball rolling on this and the rest will be up to you.

I’m thankful for my relationships. Whether it’s familial, platonic, romantic, any type of connection I have with someone is important to me. As I’ve gotten older my time has become more sparse and that hasn’t been easy on my relationships. It’s like each year could be a step down my chosen path and yet a step away from someone I care about. It’s been weighing on me this year, the plight of growing up I guess. It’s something I continually battle with, some days accepting and others not. Maybe it’s just the way things are supposed to be, right? What I am starting to recognize is that though people may come and go, the experiences in the end are what stick around and help us grow. Kinda profound, right? Life tends to be that way at times it seems. So a sincere thank you to everyone who I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with present, past, and future. You are why I am, were and will be.

So yea, Thanksgiving and being thankful. Good stuff. That’s all I got for today, go enjoy yourself this week and remind the people in your life that you care about them. Spread the positive energy and all that good stuff. Until next week, be well and be safe, I’ll talk at ya soon.
