Thank You

It’s that time again.

I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by.

Thanksgiving is in just a few days. I had originally planned on putting together a post about how to maintain healthy habits throughout the holidays, but the truth is – I’ve already done that.

Last year, I was invited to do an interview to talk about healthy holiday habits. And over the last several years, I’ve written extensively about this subject matter on a variety of different platforms.

The truth is, the game plan stays the same, regardless of which holiday you’re celebrating. The idea is to stay (at least somewhat) active, don’t use food as a crutch and try not to stuff yourself silly since nothing good comes out of that behavior.

So whether you’re celebrating a holiday, family get-together or attending an event, I’ve got you covered.

But what I haven’t done on this blog yet is express gratitude.

I’ve talked about how to connect with a sense of it in a recent article on Achieve Today, and I’ve written about people who inspire me.

But what I wanted to do today is to express thanks to those of you who have made an impact in my life.

Thank You

I’m not going to make this long and drawn out.

You have things to do and so do I. It’s a busy week, and I know many of you are traveling. If you aren’t, then your schedule may be filled with things like cooking, shopping, and cleaning.

So I’ll make this quick and I’ll wish you a happy holiday weekend.

I want to say thank you. Those of you who regularly visit my blog and take the time to share your thoughts with me, I truly appreciate it.

I also want to thank you for inviting me to contribute guest posts for your blogs, websites, round-up posts, interviews, and other projects.

I’ve made some great friends over the last year, and I am beyond grateful for that. You know who you are.

To be honest, this hasn’t been an easy year for me. If you’ve followed any of my work this past year, then you’re aware of this. I’ve always been rather candid here, and while I don’t just sit around and complain, I’ve discussed some of my challenges and mentioned what I do to transcend them – whether I use holistic methods or implement self-awareness and consciousness expanding techniques.

I’ll mention that while I’ve had my struggles, it’s been you – the ones who have continued to visit me and connect with me that has made a positive impact in my life.

I think the world is a crazy place, even though it’s wonderful too. In this, many of us are finding ourselves in a state of confusion – doing what we can to navigate through the chaos. Times are tough, people are strange – but when we connect with one another, it makes a difference.

A good one.

Wrapping this up

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Enjoy your families, relish in whatever joy you can and treat food like a friend.

Before I go, just know one thing.

I’m aware that some of my posts may seem a little bit strong in tone. When I talk about things like why we need to quit squabbling and grow up, or when I mention that we need to wake up and start questioning ourselves and life as we know it, just know I say these things out of a love for humanity.

I don’t sugar coat anything. I feel we’ve reached a time where choosing awareness is a necessity.

Sometimes the delivery is a bit “in your face”, but it’s because I care. Otherwise, I’d sit around and talk about trivial things like how to grow nice triceps or lose weight in a week.

My role in this world was to snap out of the dream and see things clearly. The next step was to share these observations with you.

So if you’ve stuck around this far, I appreciate it more than you know.

It means you respect me, my work and most importantly, why we’re even here. To awaken from the illusion and start using our imaginations wisely.

Happy Happy Thanksgiving!

And again, thank-you.

All my best,
