November for many is Thanksgiving month, but it means different things to different people. Traditionally for me, it's a time to focus on your life and to give thanks for it. Let me ask you, do you really ever stop and reflect, or is the month like any other, you're just rushing through it not blinking, not stopping to just inhale. Are you just focused on making the turkey and prepping for the family to come? I love Thanksgiving and the entire month of November because it signified many things for me:
I tend to have a deeper conversation with myself and with God during the last two months of the year. It's like my annual reboot. Do you have a time of reflection or reboot in your life? You don't have to wait until November to do this, but you should make sure you fit it into the year.
Reflection allows you to readjust the areas of your life that just aren't right. It allows you to fix mistakes and build on successes. It keeps you grounded in the important things and limits your focus on the superficial.
So for me November and Thanksgiving are not about Black Friday or the countdown to Christmas, it's much bigger than that. I'm truly thankful for my unique life and for you the family at The Happiness Bucket. Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving and I pray you begin your reboot process with a smile!
