I just wanted to take a moment from my food prepping and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
While we should strive to do this all year long, on Thanksgiving it’s important to reflect upon what is good in our lives and be thankful for our blessings.
I was doing exactly that this morning and I would like to share them with you:
The Top 10 Things I am Grateful For
10) My desire to learn. I am not one to accept things at face value and always question everything, research and learn.
9) Having the chance to help others. Whether it’s through my writings, my nutritional counseling, my products or my presentations, nothing jazzes me like being able to help others feel better.
8) Goodness in this world. Sadly, the media tend to only cover what is bad, shocking, divisive or cruel in this world, so many times it may be hard to see the goodness, but it’s there.
7) My faith. In a day and age when religion is a taboo subject, I am not afraid to say that I am proud of my Episcopalian faith and it has helped me through several trying times.
6) Our country. Regardless of its faults, we still live in the greatest country in the world, and we are free because of the incredible sacrifices made by our brave service men and women.
5) Dark chocolate and red wine. No explanation necessary.
4) My mantra. I believe this is a Bob Marley quote and I adopted it as my mantra: You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
3) My state of health and fitness. While my lifestyle habits have certainly helped this cause, I also have been blessed to not have physical limitations or other barriers that would impact my health or level of fitness.
2) YOU! I am grateful for all of you because you are the reason I am doing what I do, and the reason I hung up my CPA hat several years ago in favor of guiding others to get healthier.
1) My loved ones. My beautiful children Danielle and Mickey, son-in-law Brian, and my boyfriend Rick, you all mean the world to me. Of course my family also includes my feline babies too—Max and Riley—and my siblings!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving and may God bless you and yours.
To your health,
