On thanksgiving, it’s kind of a rule that you have to be thankful for something, and you have to share those things you are thankful for with others. So here it is, my obligatory, “thankful” post.
But why does it have to be obligatory? Well, this year I’ve done a really bad job at being thankful. It’s actually become more and more of a habit for me. It’s hard to concentrate on all the good things around me when my fears and anxieties take center stage. It can almost feel like a post about thankfulness has to be obligatory, rather than authentic. But I want to change that in this coming year.
