Now that November is upon us, I definitely have the holidays in mind. Partly because Mr. Lively and I are hosting our extended families for a huge Thanksgiving weekend. It’s going to take a few weeks of prep for the four nights of entertaining… starting very soon.
But beyond the logistical aspects of this unusually epic holiday season, I also want to experience the essence of what the holidays stand for in a greater way.
Which is why I’ve created an intention to thank one person each day of November for the impact they have had on my life. This daily “thanksgiving” ritual, I hope, will help me keep my eye on the real prize this month: giving thanks.
Right now I don’t have a full list of people in mind. I’m simply going to take it one day at a time and reach out in an email or letter to a different person who has helped me become who I am today as a person, business owner, and friend.
I’ll be reporting back here in a month to fill you in on how the experience went (yay for accountability). And of course, I invite anyone else who is also hoping to seek the intention of Thanksgiving to join me.
I’d love to hear how this intention affects your life and holiday season, too.
