Merry Thanksoween!

Every year that we approach this season people spend their time huffing and puffing about Christmas music starting too early. Get over yourself and for once I want you to realize that this season has nothing to do with costume parties, perfectly roasted turkey, candy canes, or gifts. If you take a humble look at all these holiday festivities you will see that it is we are taking time out of our day to spend it with family, friends, and random strangers we love. We all have fond memories of childhood halloween parties where our mom dressed us in some ridiculous costume or took the leap of faith and let us choose our costumes. I think in like 2nd grade I decided bring the saying “you are what you eat” to life and I was a blue M&M….listen it was during the fad of when everyone discovered their inner candy coated chocolate self. My poor choice of childhood costume is neither here or there but rather a representation of the greater meaning of how sweet the season is.

The sweetness isn’t your Grandma’s cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning but rather that emotional sweetness of filling your life of things that bring you pure joy. But why must we wait until a certain part of the year to fill our lives of this joy? I don’t. I listen to Christmas music year round, relish in cardigan weather all the time…sometimes I turn the air conditioning down so I can fully embrace this, and eat the foods I love in moderation because at the end of the day it doesn’t matter the season to do something I love.

I don’t want to confuse you and make you think that I am the Grinch and if you know me you will understand that I am actually Christmas’ biggest fan. But I don’t love it for the gifts, in fact the opportunity to experience another Christmas is the only gift that I need. So this Merry Thanksoween…see what I did there…remember the true meaning of the season. The excitement and sweetness of spending the time with those people you love or love to hate and the memories that you will forever cherish.

That is all for now. Remember to go out there and change the world–we all have the power to.

Inspirationally,

Nick

    1. That was indeed a life altering experience in which I will only be able to recover by getting another one. Only this time I think I am going to go the simple route with just a little ranch on it. Deck the halls with …publix chicken tenders… of holly fa la la la la la
