Canadian Thanksgiving is full of stuffing, cinnamon and pumpkin, but most importantly it’s filled with love from your family and friends. I look forward to coming home every Thanksgiving– not only for the copious amount of food. I genuinely feel refreshed taking a weekend with my favourite people in the world, to think about all the amazing things we have going for us.
Mid-terms and papers are magically starting to appear, and reading lists are beginning to grow; but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a minute to be thankful for:
- The 3 F’s: Friends, Family and Food (duh)
- Learning from mistakes
- Laughing till your stomach hurts
- Sunshine, Sunsets…. Anything to do with sun, stars and the moon basically
- Clean Water- and the ability to have 8 glasses a day
- Kindness of Strangers: someone at Starbucks left their change for the next customer, which was me (yay for free coffee & good karma)
- Art in every way, shape or form
- Autumn (crunchy leaves, pumpkins, scarves, scary movies ect.)
Obviously there are millions of things to be thankful for, but don’t forget to take a minute to actually reflect on it.
Till next time,
