Gobble Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving!!  I hope you were able to spend the day surrounded by your closest friends and family, eating great food and sharing lots of wine and laughter.

This is such a wonderful holiday.  In this fast-paced, success-hungry, new iPhone obsessed world, it is a day that slows everyone down and forces us to sit and give thanks for how lucky we are.  Because we are pretty stinkin' lucky.  

The other 364 days of the year, we're all complaining about what we don't have.  We're selfish, greener-grass-seeking, the-world-revolves-around-me children.  Nothing is ever enough -- not in our careers, not in our possessions, not in our relationships.  We're all striving for more and better... which is a very good thing to strive for, as long as you can remember how lucky you already are. 

Thanksgiving is a beautiful day that pops up once a year to remind us of what we should be doing every day throughout the year.  Be hustling after more and better, but be grateful for the amazing gifts you already have.  Don't lose sight of them as you focus on all the things you want in your future.  Don't forget that while you may be a starving artist, living on dreams and ramen noodles, you are already one lucky son-of-a-gun.
