AN OSTENTATIOUS TITLE FOR KEÁNU'S THOUGHTS
Thanksgiving has come already. It’s a day about celebrating gratitude for what we have. This usually includes food, entertainment, friends, and family. Breaking them down, they support our needs at all levels from basic survival to human connection. All in all, the values of Thanksgiving are wonderful to have a holiday for.
Unfortunately, some people have to work, are separated from their families, or struggle to have food on the table. Not everyone can celebrate like in the Hallmark specials, which is at the heart of this post.
Even though the holiday passed, it shouldn’t stop us from having a daily Thanksgiving mindset. It’d be great to gorge on feasts every day, but I’m looking to something deeper here.
Think about some of the things you’ve done for past Thanksgivings.
These are actions that we should do weekly if not daily. Of course, there will be stress and struggles, but it’s all the more reason to cherish and incorporate these values of Thanksgiving into your life consistently rather than leave it to holidays that come far and few between throughout the year.
This one goes out to my pupperoni, the calvin canine, the big turkey. Over the past few years, he’s always been there when I needed a hug—or he needed a tummy rub. In that time, I’ve learned a few things about a doge’s wisdom:
Go for a walk. Although it's blistering outside, a little change of scenery helps add some color to your day, even if your colorblind.
You don't always get to go to the dog park, so make all the friends you can while you’re there.
To some, digging is a sport. Others search for a bone or root. Just because you dig deeper and deeper, doesn’t mean you’ll find what you seek.
Sometimes you'll be alone, and you’ll have to make your own fun until your hooman returns. But that’s okay because you’re your own best company.
The world is full of different sights, smells, sounds, and tastes. Go see, smell, hear, and lick everything you can.
