Holiday, but no excuses

I like the ideas of holidays because it’s a time to stop doing what you’re doing and spend time with people. Despite the issues surrounding Thanksgiving because it leads to the genocide of Native folks here in the United States, I do appreciate the sentiment of taking time to be thankful. However, like I said in an earlier post, I’m trying to write down 3 things that I grateful for as soon as I wake up and when I go to bed. I’m trying to train my brain to seek positivity because by doing so, positivity does come back to me in some way or form. It may not be the biggest thing or the most significant, but even being able to breathe is something that is positive.

Today, I’m grateful for:

  1. A place to go for the holiday

  2. That I woke up

  3. Water

Originally, I had a few other things on my list such as a pleasant message from an old friend on my phone, but it’s nice to just think of the really fundamental things as things to not be taken for granted.

In short, there’s always time to do what you want to do. It’s not about having the time to do it - it’s about making time for it. If that means waking up a bit earlier, then I’ll sacrifice some sleep. Like one of my favorite skateboarders said, I really want to leave a mark. I don’t want to go through life half ass.
