Sometimes we have to “work” at relaxing. Taking a few days off during the Thanksgiving holiday can be even more stressful than if we were working our day to day schedules. But it shouldn’t be that way… not even close. Thanksgiving is more than turkey and feasting. It’s more than football and parades.  It’s more than the launch date for the holiday shopping extravaganze to begin.  It’s a time for family and friends and reflection. For the most part we all discuss who is going where for the big meal, but what about the reflection time? Have you ever asked someone what they are actually thankful for over this holiday weekend? If we don’t reflect on where we’ve come from and what we have accomplished, then how can we accurately judge how we are doing overall? If we don’t reflect on the effort, then we don’t see the results or status of that effort in full. And the people along the way… the family, the friends, the colleagues that have supported us, encouraged us, lended a hand…. they also deserve a moment of gratitude.

So instead of stressing over the work that is not getting done due to a long weekend, or panicking over the turkey that is still frozen and it’s 2:30 on Thanksgiving Day, or worrying about the relatives that are visiting and the clothing they forgot to bring with them for the dinner, we suggest taking a moment and reflecting on the positive events of the past year. During that reflection time, give a mental thanks to those who have been there for you, and then take a moment and actually thank them. A moment of gratitude goes a long way and definitely gets you set up for the upcoming year with even more positivity.

Happy Thanksgiving and much gratitude to all who have made our past year such as success and a joy to be a part of. We’ve come a long way over the past 3 1/2 years and the future is as bright as ever. The blessings of friends and family are too numerous to cover in a blog, so let me just say you are all appreciated and loved. Enjoy the weekend and we will be back on the mats on Monday rested and ready to end the year with great energy and forward momentum for December and the launch of 2013.
