Thanksgiving & Palm Trees In November
As a natural-born Dane and someone who grew up outside the USA, I never celebrated Thanksgiving or even really knew about the holiday before moving here. But I admit this day has grown on me over the years. I like the idea of giving thanks. It’s something I do naturally, continually (even just a few days ago!!), but sometimes it’s nice to voice those thanks in a more formal manner too. So, that’s what I do today. I take a moment to sit down, think through my life and remind myself of all the things of have to be thankful for.
And honestly, I have a lot!
My life has had it’s ups and downs, but I can truthfully say that where we are today, the life that we’re living now, the experiences we have through our RV lifestyle, the friends we’ve made, the beauty of nature we enjoy and the time we’re able to spend together are exactly where I want to be. Today I’m sitting in 80-degree weather, in the sun, next to hot springs with my furry family and palm trees all around me. Who wouldn’t be happy?
Our lifestyle and how we live may not be for everyone (in fact, I know it’s not for everyone), but for us it’s been everything we wanted and more. It’s not only helped me to expand my horizons, but it’s also taught me to simplify and enjoy the moment which, in turn, has taught me to be more thankful. A true, positive feedback circle…the best kind.
My wish is that you, in your life, are able to find that same bliss. Whether it be in your working life, your family, your travels or anywhere else, I hope that today is full of warmth and joy with many things you can be thankful for.
A hearty Thanksgiving to you all!
