Can you believe it?
It's almost Thanksgiving!
Maybe it's just me, but did the time speed past from Halloween till now?
Man, it sure seems like it.
Also, what happened to the hoodie/bonfire/hot cocoa weather??
It's like it was only about a week and all of a sudden it's winter.
And here I was really looking forward to having some bonfires... and hot cocoa...
This is the time to remember what we are thankful for!
The tradition is pretty interesting (as most are) in that it's based around a group of people looking for a new life and meeting people where they end up.
The Pilgrims were not prepared for North-Eastern winters and many of them died!
(Imagine if they first landed in Hawaii instead. We would have such a different world...)
Luckily for them, some of the more rational people made inroads with some of the Native People and were able to survive because of their hospitality.
The whole "Season of Thanksgiving" is based on that idea.
We should be thankful.
You can decide for yourself to Whom or to What you will be thankful, but you can absolutely be appreciative of the people and things you have in your life.
Do you have the ability to breathe? Appreciate it!
Do you have a home to go to? Appreciate it!
Do you have friends and/or family that you can spend time with over the Holidays? Appreciate them!
I've heard about studies that determine that people who appreciate the things they have in life have a more fulfilled life!
Personally, I believe this to be absolutely true.
We all go through good times and bad times but it's our attitude that determines the end results.
When bad things (like a Nor'Easter) come and beat you down and all seems hopeless, do you give up and just die or do you look for ways to get through it?
This applies across the board in life.
So while you're hanging out with family or friends, watching football on TV (Go Lions!! lol) or just resting up, have a great holiday and know that we haere at Magic Motorsports appreciate you!
See ya soon!
