38 ways to truly feel thankful this Thanksgiving
THANKSGIVING IS MY favourite American holiday, because in its essence it’s an officially recognized celebration of that great universal truth: It’s good to be alive, and we have a lot to be thankful for.
Sometimes the amount of Excel spreadsheets, laundry lists, and insurance appointments in my life makes me temporarily forget this, which is very foolish of me, so I made a list for myself of things to do to remember. I’ll be spending this Thanksgiving thousands of kilometers from North America, but this list, and the wonder of the world, is no less applicable.
1. Find something beautiful that’s free. Revel in it, by yourself, for an hour.
2. Find a small child and remember being in awe of being alive.
3. Take a walk through a place where things grow wild.
4. Turn off the internet, the television, and your phone for 24 hours. Take a break from the digital world.
