let’s take a moment..
At least some break from your daily lives, and spend time with family and friends. How graceful our lives are in the United States! Reading Thoreau always reminds me of the inherent good in life– let’s not watch messages that tell us we need more, we’re not good enough, we’re overweight or uncompetitive. In debt or unemployed, we have everything we need. Cherish our health! Relish the community! Our politicians are doing well! Sometimes being happy is the best privilege we have.
Things I’m thankful for this year.
1. Good food. That it still exists, if you know where to look, and donations of pure generosity. The good people in this field who do writeup work, and fight to bring this onto your table for every day.
2. Collaboration: The internet brings us new ways to learn and work together to solve our problems. As someone who just got a job because of the ‘net, I’m making it work for me in Boston. That’s a lot to say.
3. The poor, grassroots, and homeless. These are my favorite people, and god-bless them this Thanksgiving. To the random poor man trying to make bills work, doing odd jobs around the community, that I relate to so well: I respect you.
Thank you so much for reading, and I hope that everyone finishing up schoolwork can concentrate and become the person they wanted to be.
