'We are what we repeatedly do,
excellence then is not an act,
but a habit.'
A holiday such as Thanksgiving should be something to look forward to, but if you're already overscheduled , it can be just another thing to do in an already hectic life. For the past 8 years I have kept a gratitude journal. It reminds me that despite how busy or how stressful life gets, it is full of blessings every single day. Take some time this holiday and reflect on all the things you're grateful for - you may find that your list is a lot longer than you thought. As the song says (not sure which one) ' Give thanks with a grateful heart. '

I love Thanksgiving! I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing on the first long weekend of the fall and, of course, enjoying the food. If your family is anything like ours, the table is loaded with enough food to feed an army. We all come equipped with our Tupperware bowls to take home the leftovers. And when itís my turn to host Thanksgiving dinner, Iím grateful that most of the dessert goes home with the rest of the family! Then I donít feel as though I have to finish it myself. With a bit of planning and preparation you can also enjoy this season without feeling as though youíve blown all your hard work in one weekend. See if you can put some of these tips into practice:
With a bit of planning you can feel great about holiday eating !
