Hey! Here’s an idea! How about instead of talking about dieting and bingeing during this thankful holiday, we focus on gratitude!
No talk about getting stuffed or having to starve yourself for a week after Thanksgiving. No talk about “saving up” for the Thanksgiving feast and then devouring everything in sight to the point of groaning discomfort. No swapping diet techniques in between courses. No squishing your belly after the meal in disgust.
Instead, let’s talk about stuff that moves us forward. That fulfills us. That makes us happy. That motivates us.
Let’s talk about family. Let’s talk about friends. Let’s talk about making a difference in the world. Let’s swap success stories between courses. Let’s talk about something that made us feel really good this week. Let’s talk about something that we want to do to make the world a better place next week.
Have a very, very wonderful Thanksgiving!
