Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.
Of course, that’s not because of the story of the Pilgrims and Indians. In fact, I’m embarrassed to tell you that I didn’t know what a Pilgrim was until roughly ten years ago.
“Misti, I slept through most of social studies class in school, but over the years and repetition, I at least picked up some history,” one friend said, after I honestly asked, “What’s a Pilgrim?”
Truthfully, I’d heard the word, and I even had visuals of a giant table with lots of food on it. I liked that part, a lot! But, I didn’t understand the story, or the truth of the history.
Turns out, neither did my friend.
Over time, I’ve learned a ton about our history, but most importantly, I’ve learned the real significance of #Thanksgiving.
The real meaning in this magical holiday, where we get to devour our favorite delectables, is in the act of giving thanks. And, I have much to be grateful for.
My friend, for one, who didn’t disown me when she found out I didn’t know what a Pilgrim was. And then dove into the research with me—what a gift!
When I think about the many people and experiences I am deeply grateful for, I feel this overwhelming desire to go hug a thousand people—at least—and say, “Thank you for being you.”
Maybe I’ll make that one of my top goals for 2016. Done!
Speaking of goals, this year, I wanted to give you something super special, and valuable. Since one of the top questions I get is, “How do I step into (or encourage others to their) my greatness,” I put together a comprehensive, yet brief, training on this very topic.
This is my little way of saying “Thank you” for cheering me on, sharing my stories/content, and sharing your breakthrough moments. It brings me pure joy to know that something I said or did encouraged you to step into your greatness.
Here’s the video.
