Thanksgiving Wishes

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends. Does anyone else find Thanksgiving to be a good day for introspection?

I have many wishes for all of you today - that you feel love if you're spending this holiday alone, that you feel camaraderie if you're spending this day with others, that you're keenly aware and grateful for your blessings large and small today and every day, and most of all that you each experience a moment of serene stillness in your soul today that allows you to take a deep breath and realize you are enough.

Your strengths, your weaknesses, your talents and your deficiencies...they all balance out and add up to enough.*

When you embrace the concept of enough, you don't have to cling so hard to your strengths, be ashamed of your weaknesses, feel guilty about your abundant talents, or inadequate in the face of your deficiencies. There's a feeling of wholeness that's comforting and invigorating all at the same time.

Out of everything, that's what I wish most for you today. To know you are enough. And to know that enough is better than perfect any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

E-card of the week, because it's Thursday and that's what happens here on Thursday. To my fellow freaks who don't like their food touching:

Happy Thanksgiving. Peace, love, and turkey.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I only allow my turkey and cranberry sauce to touch. ;)

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and MFD Steph!

  3. Exactly. I am thankful we always have enough of everything and each other!!
    Love your very Grateful Momma

  4. This is amazing! You are definitely more than enough. :) Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Hahahahaha I like the disclaimer at the bottom for it not being for the serial killers. I had to laugh at the ecard because I have it in my post for tomorrow!

    Happy Thanksgiving my friend!!!

  6. Such a great message for this season. I feel like the comparison trap opens just a bit wider when December comes around.

    (I take it you'll be going to Target at 6pm for some shopping right? What is the world coming to…)

  7. Bahahahha... I love the fine print!
    My sister can't stand her food touching either. I like to mix mine up... a little corn with some mashed taters... oh yeah, that's where shit's AT!

  8. This is such a lovely post! And your fine print cracked me up! My husband doesn't like his food touching--and he eats "in order" meaning he eats ONE thing on his plate at a time. It baffles me because half the fun of thanksgiving, to me, is getting a forkful of potatoes, some green bean casserole and a little turkey all in one bite! haha!

  9. I hope you had a great thanksgiving!!!

  10. Hope you and all of your loved ones had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday Steph! :) We are all definitely enough - there's a lot of negativity in the world but it takes practice bouncing it off. :) Have a great one love! -Iva

  11. can't wait to hear more ab your thanksgiving, and thanks for the sentiment that i needed to hear!

  12. hahaha serial killers this is not meant for you.
    seriously though what a lovely post. i struggle with the whole enough thing, i'm better at being ashamed and inadequate than being proud or acknowledging that i even have strengths or talents. so, thank you :)

  13. I HATE my food touching. And, I only eat one type of food at a time. I like order, okay!

  14. There aren't enough words to say how much I love this post Steph, so this will have to be ENOUGH. :-) I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
