Giving Thanks – Celebrating Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

I can’t believe that it is already October, let alone Canadian Thanksgiving.  I find myself reflecting on the year so far and I can’t help but feel like giving thanks for those people and events in my life that have helped to uplift and empower me.

I know it seems cliché to only celebrate those things that you are thankful for once a year. For me, I don’t see it like that. I am always thankful but sometimes given how busy our lives can be as working professionals, parents, sisters and friends … we forget to slow down and take time for personal reflection.

Today, as we celebrate this time of harvest and blessings in our lives let me sure with you what I am grateful for this year:

  1. My family (& friends) – my support, my rocks and the people I can lean on when I am feeling happy or overwhelmed. The people I go to when I need to just “be me”. This, if you recall was the year I moved from twenty something to a thirty something.

  2. Many opportunities to be able to try new things and pursue passions that I never knew I had.
  3. Living in a country that encourages its citizens to take a stand, voice their opinions and unites in times of need.
  4. Those individuals who have personally helped to guide me along my new journey as a fitness professional, helping me to harness my passion and push me out of my comfort zone to become a female entrepreneur.
  5. Finally, thankful that my little one is shifting up to preschool … as this signals a near end to the “terrible twos”.

    Always so much to be Thankful for…Unfortunately, we get caught up in the daily routines and forget “to stop and smell the roses”…Thanks for reminding us of the importance of Family;…;Friends; and Spiritual presence in our life.
