File Thanksgiving as another STUPID, AMERICAN Holiday.
Really, I can't be upset about it though, I have two paid days off... so I should be grateful for Thanksgiving.
Everyday is a day to be thankful. I BEGIN my days with gratitude. I take my 20 minutes of meditation time in the morning to give thanks to God for all the WONDERFUL people and wonderful things I have in my life... then I VISUALIZE my life... exactly as I want it to be. No doubt -- this has been the most empowering thing I have EVER done for myself.
Why do people get so caught up in Thanksgiving?
I spent Thanksgiving day body boarding at my favorite beach.... We ate some kosher, beef hot dogs and potato salad and some chips.... some laulau (pork and fish wrapped with greens and cooked for a realllllly long time) and that's it. It doesn't get any better than that. I mean -- we was in CHILL mode. We didn't kill ourselves, slaving over a hot stove, breaking the bank to feed everybody and their mama. We just hung out at the beach and it was great.
Came home -- and my neighbor had cooked a HUGE meal and had nobody to eat it with... so husband and I ate at her crib too. We played a round of scrabble. Watched Nacho Libre. Laughed my butt off then went straight to bed.
It was a great day... even if it is a stupid American holiday. LOL...
