What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving ? 🙏🏽🙏🏽
Gratitude, and a positive mindset, are crucial for our health. Measurable health benefits have been found from the power of positive thinking, and I love that Thanksgiving gives us an opportunity to slow down and reflect on our blessings🙏🏽 I’m grateful for my family and good health... what about you?😊

Drinking from my Saucer -- by George McPhee
I've never made a fortune and it's probably too late now. But, I don't worry about that much,
I'm happy anyhow. For as I go along
life's way, I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer, 'cause my cup has overflowed. I haven't got a lot of riches, and sometimes the going's tough, but there are caring folks around me, and that makes me rich enough. I thank GOD for HIS BLESSINGS, and the mercies he's bestowed. I'm drinking from my sauce 'cause my cup has overflowed.' If GOD gives me strength & courage when the going gets steep and rough, I'll not ask for other blessings -- I'm already blessed enough. And may I never be too busy to help others bear their loads. With them I'll share my saucer, 'cause my cup has overflowed.
Have a blessed overfloweth Tuesday!! #CountYourBlessings#NameThemOneByOne#ThanksgivingBlesings#Grace 🙏🏽 #DynamicSportsInc#HighFivePillars 🖐🏾
Look how festive I am?! This pic is meant to put you in the Thanksgiving spirit and inspire your turkey eating glam look...did it work?😂🍁 I know they’ll be lots of busyness and prep work these next few days (my blood pressure is already rising just thinking about it) but don’t forget to pause, put down the spatula and enjoy the blessings that surround you! Life is to short for perfect mashed potatoes! Go play a game of scrabble, snuggle a little one or invite some helpers into kitchen! In short...ENJOY IT! Soon it’ll only be a precious memory...make it a good one.♥️ #thanksgivingglam#pauseandplay#countyourblessings#familyiswhatmatters
My first born, my little mini me.
I notice how different he is when he’s alone. He listens a bit better, is a bit more calm and doesn’t find the need to scream as much lol.
Holidays are around the corner and it’s time for a hair cut. This handsome little dude needs to get ready for Thursday feast.
Happy Tuesday !

Beautiful sunrise over the Lake 🌅 It is easy to take things for granted... like waking up to Sunlight or taking a breath of Fresh Air... value and cherish things you are blessed with in life today for they may not be there tomorrow🙏🏻 #countyourblessings#thankful
Having an overall focus on the positive triggers the parasympathetic part of the nervous system that eases stress. In fact, research at UC Davis has linked gratitude with a 23 percent decrease in levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. Here’s a fun activity for you to start on thanksgiving. No matter how your day went, end everyday off by writing out something or someone, a moment or gesture that made you happy, feel good and that you were thankful for. Place it in your jar and next thanksgiving (1 year from now) read your notes and see how abundant your life actually is. #thereisalwayssomethingtobethankfulfor#countyourblessings#thanksgiving#wellbeing#focusonthegood
This holiday season, we are extremely thankful for all of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff members. It was wonderful to see everybody enjoying our DUCSgiving feast together last night. Special thanks to @desalesdining for preparing an amazing meal and taking care of all of us, you guys rock!
Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday!
For anyone who has ever struggled with food, holidays can be TOUGH. If you are in a place that you don’t feel safe and comfortable around food, then holidays may bring you more anxiety than anything. .
The mind set can be: don’t blow it. Be good. Don’t blow it. Just a bite, only a small bite, just a taste.... and then, when you go beyond what you were trying for, you assume you “blew it” and then you go all out only to be left feeling ashamed, uncomfortable and in a new mindset of how you will compensate tomorrow for this. .
How do I know? Because that was once my life. This week and all throughout the holiday season, try to pay attention to the blessings. Count them. Take deep breaths. Focus on the things that bring you joy instead of the guilt and the black and white mentality. ❤️
Counting some blessings before the day ends. This is my favorite way to end a week— reflect on the gifts God gave me that brought joy to my heart and a smile to my face. This is such a simple practice, but it’s powerful. Always reminds me I have way more to be grateful for than to be discouraged about. (Journal is Molly and Rex brand bought at HomeGoods a few years ago but I believe I’ve seen them at Michael’s stores too).
Today I am grateful for being a strong, confident woman. I can be fierce and I can be kind. I can be practical and I can follow my heart. I can be irrational and crazy, but I can also be down to earth and level headed. I don't like confrontation but don't ever mess with the people I love. Sometimes I pat myself on the back and sometimes I'm really disappointed in myself. I'm an introvert and shy, but I can also be outgoing and friendly. I know I'm far from perfect, but I'm still proud and grateful for the woman I am.
