Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and time of year. Tis’ the season for gratitude, sharing time with loved ones, making memories, and enjoying a delectable meal. Prior to clicking away on my laptop, I pondered whether or not to share a traditional article or not. The decision was simple. This week, I share with you, from my heart, in honor of Thanksgiving, what I am grateful for this holiday.
Fortunately, I have been able to enjoy many Thanksgiving’s. Reflecting upon my childhood, I am grateful to my parents for helping create fond memories while growing up. Thanksgiving was always a special time spent with loved ones. Everyone helped in the kitchen. We each had a duty. As a child, I helped peel potatoes and assisted in making the pumpkin pies. Post the big feast, we played games, we laughed, and I got to stay up late. I am so blessed to have these memories.
With all the hustle and bustle of the world today it is easy to miss what is truly important. My parents made family a priority. To this day there isn’t anything more important than continuing to make memories with my family. As a mother, my daughters are the greatest loves of my life. I’m blessed and grateful for two healthy, beautiful, and loving girls. I am grateful for a kind, selfless, and supportive family who adore my daughters. Without a doubt my family is influential in my successes.
I extend gratitude to each and every person who is and has been a part of Evolve Yoga. Five years ago I embarked on my journey of entrepreneurship. I hadn’t a clue what I was getting myself into at the time. I took a risk, rolled with the punches, dedicated myself wholeheartedly, and there isn’t one thing I would change. The lessons I have learned and all I have experienced as being a business owner… nobody can ever take this beautiful journey away form me. I am grateful to every teacher who has inspired others at Evolve. Of course, Evolve Yoga thrives because of the incredible community support I have received all these years. I am thankful to each and every person who has walked through the studio doors. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think Evolve would have evolved into the studio it has become. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This is only a brief but laconic letter of gratitude. Might I encourage you to take a few moments and consider what you are grateful for this Thanksgiving.
Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Love, laugh, and make a memory.
